I still think documentation may need some
improvement in this area: the idea is that you read Learning Manual to
get a nice introduction, and when you understand what LilyPond is all
about, you should be able to use Notation Reference only.  So, if this
issue isn't explained in the NR, it should be changed.

No, the Notation Reference is a _reference_ manual.  It does not
attempt to explain concepts or techniques: explanations belong in
the Learning Manual.  At least that is the principle - I'm sure there
are many exceptions.  The reason is the length of the documentation -
explaining things twice would make that worse.

And this particular construct is already in the Notation Reference.
