I think there are a few things to fix. For example, the separator may
need to be stored in the properties of the macro. Otherwise,
interpreting data back would return to comma-separated arguments, which
may not be desirable, although correct.

Also, I would limit separator to a single character. You also need to
exclude space characters.

This change will need to be tested extensively in "test-org-element.el"
and "test-org-macro.el".

However, as a start, I suggest starting a new thread about a suggested
change in the syntax, with a clear title, examples, and code. Then we
can leave time for users to react to it.

Do you want to take care of it?
