Yes, it is exactly that!

I looked into the tracker but did not find this issue.
Typing "<< \\ >>" into the search bar gives 493 and I must have missed

Actually I'm sad when I see this issue is tagged "Type-Enhancement"
and "Priority-Postponed".

it obliges me (the user) to use the "explicitly instantiating voices",

When you have to use it a lot in a score you would have preferred
the "<< \\ >> construct" *Did The Right Thing*.

And besides I see other issues that are *not* postponed and have a far
higher priority level that are issues purely "hypothetical" that have
almost no chances to appear in "real-world" scores.

Sorry to grumble in a non-constrictive way.

Maybe you could add a point about "issue priorities" and/or "highest
wanted (by users) features".
We could have a kind of "polling system" to determine what are the
features/issues that are really wanted by users.
And also a point about bounties/sponsors in relation (there are people
on the french mailing list that wants to donate to the project but it
currently lacks a structure to manage these donations).
