The scaled durations do not offer a solution, just a workaround. Lilypond
still attempts to "count" the beats, aligning vertically beat after beat.
What I would like to achieve is to force Lilypond not to count beats at all.
Rather, to align vertically certain "bits of music" which I mark clearly
somehow, for example by the "|" sing (as in parallel music). Is there such a
possibility?

I suggest to just use 4/4 measures and \times 4/N where N is the number of notes in the passage. Everything should be made in \cadenzaOn, so the alignment will be done only when you say \bar ""
