Would it be hard to allow for \markup commands inserted directly
among the chords? That would provide a simple solution for all different
kind of requests of special chord notation. The syntax of the solution below
looks like a real hack.
I added the corresponding feature for figured bass some time ago, which was
really simple. Here, I realize that it could be a bit more complicated to do,
for example you need a syntax to specify the duration of the markup, but it
would certainly be nice if it was possible.

What's the appropriate way to do this in LilyPond? I read "7.2.3 Printing
chord names," but the chordNameExceptions method seems to just affect
the suffix of an existing chord, which I don't want. I just want to
display a suffix "by itself," so to speak -- although I'm not opposed to
a solution that requires me to use a random (predefined) chord, so long
as the output is the string "Un."

Any ideas?

with the last 2.7 release,

\chords {
  \notemode  { <\tweak #'text #"foo" c>4 }
