Since F16/F17 do not have presets we cannot just port those macros
there. What is one macro in F18 would map to two macros in F16/F17. And
I am pretty sure that introducing a new macro as a stop-gap like this is
a bad idea and we'd never be able to get rid of it again.

Use the macros in F18+, use the old non-macro snippets on older distributions.
