I rather sugggest an extension to have something like

  \tempo <note> = #'(<number> . <markup>)

(or whatever syntax is appropriate) so that we have a textual
representation of the tempo in the cdr element that gets printed.  The
car element could then be restricted, say, to fractions.


  \tempo 2 = #'(8683/1000 . "86.83")
