Hi Pierre-Luc!

Concerning "Bug1", I do not think the \< \mp should be merged. The part combine 
in this section is using two voices. The notes are not connected. How would you know if the 
hairpin is for voiceTwo *and* voiceOne?

For choral music it is an old convention to merge dynamics if time of start, 
time of end, and target are all identical.
Have a look at e.g. the 19th century Peters editions of Mendelssohn's SATB divisi 
motets, e.g. this score 
<http://imslp.org/wiki/6_Motets%2C_Op.79_%28Mendelssohn%2C_Felix%29>. The
same convention is used today, see e.g. bar 31, basses, in this score 

It's also uncommon to use "a2" and "Solo x" in such scores, a2 is assumed or 
rests are used instead.
