It seems to me that Han-Wen has never really accepted the
idea of using the DevNull context to place lyrics (the idea
of the DevNull context was originally proposed by Erik
Sandberg). I don't agree that it's just a matter of documentation,
at least if the conclusion the DevNull context is no longer
recommended. At least we should have a feature request that
it somehow is possible to place the lyrics according to a Voice
that's not typeset. Erik's proposal was a response to such a
request to be able to typeset the lyrics of a song over a guitar
accompaniment, without typesetting the song itself.
If you ever played a Bach cantata, you know that the same
principle often is used in the instrumental parts for the
arias and recitatives, where the lyrics is typeset on top
of the instrumental part to make it simpler to follow, but
the where it would require too much space to also typeset
the full song part.

I have noticed that LilyPond v. 2.10.33 ignores ties and slurs when applying
lyrics to notes that are put into a Devnull context.


as you can see, we know about this problem:

Using DevNull in this situation is not a good idea; we plan to change
the Documentation for the next version (actually, I am the one who's
supposed to rewrite this chapter).
