FWIW, I have found that you can chain multiple text grobs onto a note.
Where text has "bashed" into a note or marking, I've just added an empty

It's a kludge, I know, and not terribly "structured", but every time I

Yes, this is the method I came across while browsing the mail archives, and I find it simple and intuitive, pace those who might consider it inelegant coding. The problem was so pervasive in my first attempts at using Lilypond that I was delighted to discover this quick workaround.
