No, because it would not enough to write a cross reference to an
individual snippet -- a particular place in a Texinfo document can be
cross-referenced only with @node or @anchor.  I know you don't want to
point to individual snippets, but I think it's worthwhile.

This is not a Texinfo construct, this kind of construct is handled by
lilypond-book.  It might have been already explained umpteen times that
lilypond-book doesn't parse Texinfo/LaTeX/whatever syntax -- maybe we
should say it clearly in docs?

No, I proposed to make lilypond-book write

@lydoctitle FOO TITLE

when the snippet contains 'doctitle="FOO TITLE"' and doctitle fragment
option is used.  @lydoctitle would be defined in the Texinfo document.

If I had more time, I'd be glad to be sponsored for lilypond-book features.
