Looks good.

Not sure whether it is a good idea to have a separate subcategory when
there is already a top hierarchy "accordion".  Are there other
instruments to push and pull?  Maybe just scripts.pull and scripts.push?
Or scripts.pushbellows in analogy with scripts.upbow?

By the way, can one introduce alias names?  We have names like
accordion.accFreebase which are quite absurd, containing two instances
of "acc" and missspelling "free bass".  Migrating to a saner glyph name
would be a worthwhile longterm goal.

Looks closer than I thought.  Likely the devil is in the details...
