I'm not sure I understand all of your points.  With the new changes, it is
possible to define any grouping you want to define within a time signature.

Thus, if you want to have 2/8 + 3/8 +2 8 = 7/8, it is trivial to get (2 3 2)
grouping from a 7/8 time signature.

By current, do you mean LilyPond 2.12?  If so, I agree. That's why I'm
working on changes.
