It's not always necessary, but regularly in orchestral parts, you will have a new tempo or expression mark over each of several adjacent multirests (especially with the overly verbose German composers like Strauss and Mahler). So it would come in handy for me...

Maybe a new feature somebody wants to sponsor?

That would be a very helpful and time-saving feature, especially when producing orchestral parts. How much would it be worth? I'd be willing to contribute a modest amount if a few others wanted to join in as well.

It's not clear to me that the mm-rest text should be kept between the barlines. Of course, I can have a look into the cost of such a modification.
