Sounds familiar. :-) I got around the simultaneous RehearsalMark
limitation by using invisible measures. My dirty trick is attached
below. This time it worked but there might be situations, when it

Your solution looks interesting, too. I must dig a bit deeper into it.


\version "2.11.39"

\paper { ragged-right = ##t }
    \key a \major
    \set Score.markFormatter = #format-mark-box-letters

    \once \override Score.RehearsalMark #'outside-staff-priority = #5000
    \once \override Score.RehearsalMark #'self-alignment-X = #left
    \once \override Score.RehearsalMark #'extra-spacing-width =
#'(+inf.0 . -inf.0)
    \once \override Score.RehearsalMark #'break-align-symbols =
    \mark \markup \bold "Senza denti"

    % the hidden bar
    \override Score.TimeSignature #'stencil = ##f
    \time 1/16
    s16 \bar ""
    \revert Score.TimeSignature #'stencil

    \time 4/4

    \once \override Score.RehearsalMark #'self-alignment-X = #left
    \once \override Score.RehearsalMark #'extra-spacing-width =
#'(+inf.0 . -inf.0)
    \once \override Score.RehearsalMark #'break-align-symbols = #'(bar-line)
    \mark \markup \box {\bold "Intro"}

    d'1 \mark \default d'
