Multiple notes to one syllable

before or after the second example (about slurs) please add something
"Note that phrasing slurs don't affect the creation of melismas."

personally I don't think anybody would expect that phrasing slurs affect
Well, through the (Slurs) documentation one is somehow led to believe slurs and phrasing slurs are practically the same and only separated for nesting purposes. I was quite surprised to only recently learn that they for example behave differently at line breaks. And I have seen (and done) a quite inconsistent use of slurs or phrasing slurs. So it would be nice if at this point of the NR it was clearly pointed out that there _are_ differences for the handling of melismas.

and  I'm not sure about where you'd like it - do you mean right before the
section "Predefined commands"?
As said in the OP I'd place it before or after the second example, i.e. to the paragraph about slurs causing melismas.
