fsymeval before arg-eval?

It has to get the definition out of the symbol first.

(Otherwise, how could it tell whether the form is a funtion call, or a
macro form?)

You're right that the definition of the language should clearly specify
that the function to be applied is the symbol-function contents before
evaluation of the arguments.  That is, it is not correct to re-fetch the
contents of the cell after those evaluations.
