Yes, if it isn't already noted.  I'm not certain.

Could you look into it?  I have a lot of university work right now.  Could
you find the section in the manual where this info should be added,
and suggest a few sentences that would clarify this issue?

Is it true that LilyPond doesn't like music variables with a number in the name? If I did:

voice1 = {  somemusic  }

and used that later, LilyPond would complain?

Yes.  Some of us use roman numerals to get around this.
