I think the solution is a documentation change.  timeSignatureSettings can
only apply to the context containing the time signature, i.e. wherever the
Timing_translator is.

If we want to have beam settings set by the timeSignatureSettings property,
and we want different time signatures in different staves, we will need to
move the Timing_translator to the Staff context, instead of the Score
context.

I'll cook a patch to the documentation.

Thanks,

Carl
