b) 4.3.1 Line breaking
"Note that manually forced line breaks have to be added in parallel

What means "in parallel" here? The example following this sentence does
not show "parallel breaks", there's only one \break in one voice.
If the purpose is suggesting the use of \break in each voice, the
does not match this purpose.

What I'm getting wrong?

I think that the example is demonstrating that you can add breaks in a
music expression that contains only breaks and spacing information, as
long as that expression is in parallel with the music.

I use this feature often in my scores; I create a spacing variable and
actually add it in a parallel context in a Staff.

I agree that it is poorly worded and needs to be fixed.

Well, if I read it again, it's not that bad.
I would link to the snippet "Using an extra voice for breaks" some lines below that sentence, which describes perfectly that use of \break.

I add the last (and final) three points of my report:

g) 4.5.5 Proportional notation
"The spacing is bad because the evenly spaced notes of the bottom staff do not stretch uniformly. Classical engravings include very few complex triplets and so classical engraving rules can generate this type of result."

The second sentence is not very clear to me.
Which type of result?
Shouldn't say tuplets instead of triplets?

h) 4.6.1 Displaying spacing

"Note that:

@multitable {1 staff-space} {staff-size)/4 * (25.4/72.27) mm}

@item 1 point
@tab = (25.4/72.27) mm

@item 1 staff-space
@tab = (@code{staff-size})/4 pts
@tab = (@code{staff-size})/4 * (25.4/72.27) mm

@end multitable

The first line within @multitable block is not rendered. What is meant for?

i) 4.6.1 Displaying spacing

"The pairs (a,b) are intervals, where a is the lower edge and b the upper edge of the interval."

It's not clear which pairs it's referring to.
