That's part of the problem. Is it a bug if something changed? Technically, no, 
as far as I understand the term "bug". Is it convoluted and difficult to use? 
Would graham's mother have difficulty understanding the documentation on 
getting a simple arrangement for her church choir to work the same way in 2.13 
as it did in 2.12? Probably. If I opened a bug report that was essentially, 
"Lyrics are now more difficult to use. Type - Regression, Priority - Critical", 
someone would probably close is as invalid very quickly.

Exactly this reasoning was the reason for my question, "what advantages does 
the new lyric spacing offer?" I think if we understand this, we can understand 
how to explain it, and make it easy for people to understand what needs to 
change and how.
