Well, my suggestion meets the image. Actually, the composers notation
is simply wrong, strictly speaking.
I've seen it many times, though.

Yes it's wrong but I think it is used because it better complies with the need to be easy to write it and to be less "dense" (and then someway easier to read) than traditional/correct way. Maybe the composer could add a small footnote but in my (not expert) opinion it is a very good solution. For example I found ugly and "difficult" to read the bass part of the BWV846 (c major prelude).

I don't care much about midi, why do you do? It's never music.

For didactical reason. And for that, it is pretty important.

[...]For the record, one could do:

\layout { \context { \Voice \remove Slur_engraver } }

\new Staff \with { \consists Slur_engraver }
  \key aes \major
  \clef bass
  \time 3/4
      aes,2.\=7( \\ { s4 ees2 } \\ s2. \\ { s2 bes4\=7) }

This has serious drawbacks, you'll not happy using it...

What's the equal sign? never saw before.

What's about this?

\version "2.19.82"
\score {
\time 3/4 \clef bass \key aes \major 
 << {\hideNotes aes,2.} \\ {\hideNotes s4 ees2} \\ {\hideNotes s2 bes4} \\ {aes,2.*1/3( ees2*1/2 bes4) }>> }
\layout {}
\midi {}

I know I could use tag but I tend to avoid them if possible....

Ciao and thank you, g.
