Quoting David Kastrup <address@hidden>:

Partly it might be the fault of having constructed a minimal example:
one that clearly shows the perceived symptom, but not really a
compelling motivation for wanting to change the behavior.

Perhaps some more info about the use case might help with prioritizing

Here's a longer example. I'm trying to use partcombine with lyrics. We have several ways to work it around. I'm trying to make the workaround simpler.

\version "2.17.20"

soprano = { g'4 r4 g'4. }
alto = { e'4 r4 e'4. }
verse = \lyricmode { My song }

\score {
  \new Staff <<
    \partcombine \soprano \alto
    \new Voice {
      \override NoteColumn.ignore-collision = ##t
      \omit Dots
      \omit Rest
      \hideNotes \soprano
    \addlyrics \verse
  \layout {}

There is a warning about the rests. The dots are misplaced. The later might be hard to find during proofreading.

It might be especially hard to deal with rests with dots. I'm lucky I haven't seen them in choral music yet. But it's better to be prepared.
