Indeed, thanks for the remainder.
However, in my opinion it is necessary to *change* the 'default',
'voice' and 'forget' accidental styles, because their current
behaviour result in wrongly typeset music. If the last note in the
following example doesn't get a natural, it's *impossible* to tell
that it's not another ces:

ces'1~ | ces'
ces'1( | c')

It may be argued that the slur looks different than the tie, but it's
not enough.
I'm sure that engraving books will agree with me - may someone check this?


PS By the way, i think that modern-cautionary accidental style prints
a cautionary accidental there not because of a potential confusion
with a tie, but simply because it prints remainder accidentals in the
following measure.
