Hmm, good question. The hara-kiri-group-interface has the remove-empty 
property, which controls whether empty staves should be removed. I don't know 
if there is a correct way to set this to false for only one single staff... 
At least my naive attempts led me to a solution, which apparently works just 
  \context Staff=alto \with{\override VerticalAxisGroup #'remove-empty = ##f }
     \override Score.VerticalAxisGroup #'remove-empty = ##f
     \set Staff.shortInstrumentName = "A"

Attached is the snippet to show this...


PS: I haven't been able to mark some measures with #'remove-empty=##t (by 
using \context Voice  \with {\override ...} ), no idea what I'm doing wrong 
or if it's possible at all
