I agree, and one can use an editor to have the tags automatically
inserted. I _really_ like the "saving keystrokes" approach of the
lilypond language (compare with guido for instance), but I don't think

I definitely agree. That's probably one of the reasons I usually type:

  {s2-\< s2-\!}

instead of:

< c1 {s2-\< s2-\!} >

because I can see the structure better this way. This is the reason I
