Instead of the macro I was thinking about defining the generator inside my_domain.
If the code is really always the same, it is not even necessary to define the complete
generator, just the expression to wrap around proto expressions.
I think where the wrapper is used, my_context is available.

If this is doable it would encapsulate the wrapper inside the domain, which is where it belongs.
Unless there're legitimate uses for the same domain wrapped differently.

But then there's too much of proto I don't know, and I just proposed the macro...
