Well, the proper way of doing it requires (I think) this
rather advanced \layout block:

 \layout {
   ragged-right = ##t
   \context {
     \override VerticalAxisGroup #'remove-first = ##t

I'd be surprised if anyone was okay with having that in the
LM, but in either case, what's there now needs to be removed
or replaced.  Of the two solutions presented, the nested
contexts in the first are too convoluted, and the method of
using two \score blocks (given in the second solution) is
semantically incorrect.

I agree; let's remove that part of 3.2.3.

I've attached a solution here.  Have a look at it and let me
know what you think.

This is fine, but it can't be used in 3.2.3, at least not now,
as layout blocks and overrides haven't appeared at that point.
I suggest you dump this as a template in A.4 for now.  At
least it can then be references in -user as a solution should
the question come up again.
