I agree, but in this case we'd have to first have a convert rule that turns

\version "2.6"
{ a \cresc b c d }

into

\version "2.12"
{ a \cresc \! b c d }

because otherwise the "old" \cresc would be left unfinished and
therefore would risk to break some old ly scores.

Besides, we should also have a rule to delete \endcresc since this is
no longer needed in any way.

Cheers,
Valentin
