Better yet, why can't the shorthand automatically "do the right thing"? i.e.,

That way, the *only* time anyone has to do any tweaking is when they *want* two brand new voices — which is (AFAIK) the rarest situation of all
There's also the situation where you want the main voice to be the second/third/... voice in the multi-voice section.

Also, to be precise, it should be translated into
<< {\voiceOne ... } \new Voice {\voiceTwo ...} >> \oneVoice

Anyway, I agree that this would be a better solution for most cases and I don't think it would cause any particular compatibility problems. Either you have not been hit by the problem previously (or haven't noticed it) and then nothing will change for the worse, or you have already abandoned
the construct.
