I think the most important drawback in the instrument name
approach is that the horizontal spacing is very awkward,
e.g. long rests (several longae) or ligatures plus single
notes have unwanted space in between. If only one could
"turn off" spacing, the instrument name incipits would look
perfect.

```If you read the section about "Horizontal spacing" in the manual, you can
find some parameters to tweak, to get what you want. Another solution is
to scale the durations: c\longa*1/8
```
Indeed this is the drawback for ancient music at the moment, and there are a couple of ways how to tweak the spacing manually. Another way is to set the width of the incipit manually so the spaces get "squashed" smaller. You will have the same problem, though, with
```the other approach as well.
