How to execute multiple readline commands?

Hello,

I would like to execute multiple readline commands. For example the
following macro deleting the line and inserting "goto ":

"\C-x\C-d": "\C-a\C-kgoto "

Is it possible to use something like this instead:

"\C-x\C-d": beginning-of-line kill-line "goto "

As of now, it seems to me that I have to bind all the commands I would
like to use and then use them as a macro (unless I want the keystroke to
execute exactly one command).

Thank you for your time.

There is no way to execute named readline commands except binding them
to a key. If you want more than one command, you will need to use a macro.
