What variations?

 :-) What is the 'unsubscriptable object'?

Nearly, but: 


should work. The pattern here is: 'context/@@<view-name>/<macro-name>',
without 'macros'.

You might have a look at Philipps' nugenudge (I learned it from there):


Should we include a little section about macros into the tutorial? Or a
mini-howto?  Obviously many people use them but seem to run into trouble
referencing them right, while it's easy, once you got it. On the other
hand macros are not part of Grok and described well at other places.
