Right, quite possibly the question got lost in the rpm internals 
mumble-jungle.

So forget the all the technical mumbling about scoping levels etc for 
now. What would you expect the following snippet to output (full 
reproducer spec is at https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=552944)?

%{!?foo: %define foo bar}
%define dofoo() true
echo 1: %{foo}
%dofoo
echo 2: %{foo}
