Yes, but do we want to have hara-kiri-able regular rests? There has to
be a reason why so far we consider rests as keep-alive interfaces,
hasn't it?


I don't see any good reason, at least in the domain I am familiar with.


So, my question was actually about the *default* behavior in LilyPond:
currently the default behavior prevents remove-first from working
whenever there's a partial measure at the beginning. That looks like a
bug, or doesn't it?


It's not just about remove-first, but any place in the score.
Consider a voice looking like:

r4 | R2.*7 | r2 \bar ":|:"
<some melody during s4 s2.*7 s2> \bar ":|:"
r4 | R2.*7 | r2 \bar "|."

In the first line, despite the remove-first, the voice will be
displayed.
In the last line, it will displayed too, although there are only
rests.

So this is more about the removability of rests in general.
