Although it's reminiscent of DOS, I like your use of '%' in private variable 

There's a lot of meat in this.  It'll take some time for me to chew on it and 

One thing I can say right now is, if you had an include-makefile function, the 
below would become:

        $(call include-makefile,foo.make)       # frame-enter and frame-leave 
are implicit

How are you going to guarantee that the names of the variables are unique?

You could use variable framing ;-)

What's variable framing?

You can say

$(call frame-enter)

include foo.make

$(call frame-leave)

and any changes to variables inside the frame will not affect anything
outside the frame.

See http://kolpackov.net/projects/build/ if you are interested in details.
