I think I already proposed this feature request, but anyway:
When \addlyrics or \lyricsto is used, but the user nevertheless provides durations along with the lyrics, maybe lily should just spit out a warning
saying that the durations will be ignored.

Should the durations in Lyrics affect the placement of lyrics?


  { c4 d8 e8 f4 } \addlyrics { Hii,4 hei4 ho!4 }


  { c4 d8 e8 f4 } \addlyrics { Hii,4 hei8 ho!8 }

but I wanted

  { c4 d8 e8 f4 } \addlyrics { Hii, hei \skip 8 ho! }

Durations have no effect, contrary to what is written in

There is a difference between \addlyrics and \lyricmode. \addlyrics or \lyricsto
ignore all durations and aligns syllables to notes, if you just use \lyricmode
lily will use the durations you typed.
