I have no idea whether this idea/implementation is technically feasible, but 
the gist is pretty cool!
Nice brainstorm.

Is there any way that this (or something similar) could handle other problems, 
like placing dynamics which are not attached to a note-column?
e.g. For a whole note with a crescendo starting on the second beat and ending 
on the third beat, I currently use

    << c1 \new Voice { s4 s\< s2\! } >>
