one-line percussion staff, barlines, bar rests and dynamics

I just tried percussion notation for the first time (with today's CVS)
and noticed a couple of quirks.

No barlines:

I need a percussion staff above a normal five-line staff (piano left
hand). If I make the percussion staff a one-line staff, it doesn't have
barlines anymore. It doesn't matter if I use a StaffGroup or not, I
always get barlines for the lower staff only.

Here's my score layout:

\context StaffGroup <<
    \new DrumStaff \with { \override StaffSymbol #'line-count = #1 } 
        << \maracas
           \dynamicsmaracas >>
    \new Staff
        << \piano
           \dynamicspiano >>

Ugly bar rests:

On the percussion staff, I have bars like this:
\time 6/8

The bar rest floats above the staff line, when it should be hanging
downwards from it.

Dynamics too close:

DynamicText and Hairpin objects are drawn on top of my music on the
on-line percussion staff unless I specify extra-offset for them.
