+1.  It doesn't matter what Sibelius does nor what it doesn't do; its
behaviour don't represent "standard notation practice".
However, similarly to Werner, i wouldn't call this a "lilypond error",
but a feature request.

Anyway, i'm not totally sure if this is a cross-staff issue -
cross-staffness may be just a factor.  It seems to me that the cause
of the problem is in LilyPond not assigning multiple simultaneous
voices as upper and lower automatically; and as far as i see it will
be difficult to correctly design what such automatic behaviour should
