Considering it one day later I think you may be right.

And this isn't that rare.
Neil Thornock had an application where he collated random segments that
might or might not have different time signatures.
My case is that I have consecutive sements that are defined in different
files, and I want them to explicitely stater their key, time signature
and staff in the beginning (because an editor might see _only_ this

So I think this should be configurable somehow. I don't mind if the
current behaviour is kept, but then it should be documented explicitely
(because the NR currently states that the time signature is printed
after a _change_).
And a workaround such as David's engraver should be at least in the LSR
(if it works with 2.14, that is).
