I get "Eager macro-expansion failure: (error "rx ‘not’ syntax error: (or 
10 32)")" even in response to M-x eval-buffer.

You may check whether csv-mode have got support of newline inside cell 
already and try to sell your parser to them.

There are regular discussions how wonderful it would be to extend org 
table syntax. In my opinion org spreadsheet is overloaded already. On 
the other hand, newline in table cell sometimes is really useful. I have 
seen an idea to put some macro to single-line cell that expands to 
format-specific representation during export ({{{nl}}} => <br> in the 
case of HTML). Such macro does not require extension of syntax, so it 
may be viable at least in user configuration.

SICP is dedicated to general concepts rather than to particular 
language, that is why I consider it as a "special case".
