I don't think that's true. EVAL specifically only works on
expressions, not on programs.

Me for sure. With the proposals far, the configuration language is
completely separate from the expression language---even more so than
the R5RS program language. I can see some EVAL-like mechanism for the
module language (even though there are many semantic issues that need
to be addressed in that case), but I don't think it should be in EVAL
