I did read that section, but it states, slurs are relative to a voice
context, also when explicit voices are used.
This phrase starts with a longer singel voice part and ends with a short
2 voice piece (it's piano music).

If I embed the single voice part in the first voice, I must manually do
all \stemUp and \stemDown, and rests would be to hight on the staff :-/
Therefore I was hoping for some kind of anchor... or any note or rest
without value that I can hide.

Thanks,
Oscar
