Ok. I confess that I have not seriously played music anymore for 7 or
8 years, and don't remember these cases.
Back on it.

I don't think so. Such properties are not accessible at that time.

I don't know if this is possible (I'll figure out after having tried),
but setting a dont-tuplify property to the music seen in \noTuplify { ... } 
might do it. Then, \tuplify could look at that property in order to
check if its music can be tuplified.

stay tuned :-)
