Just wanted to be clear on a point about this.  I said "courtesy
accidental" in my original post.  Bad choice of words on my part as it
could be misleading.  I think it should be a '!' accidental and not a
'?' accidental.  If I were to see '()' around the accidental in the
situation I gave in my example I would say it was wrong.
