Forgive me for being a bit scatter-brained.  This specific behavior of 
midiMaximumVolume=0 is not so bad, and my statement about dynamic levels is 
valid, but irrelevant, since this does not set the dynamic level.

(I think it would be useful to have a \tacet dynamic that is implemented as 
forcing the volume to zero—which is consistent with the fact that I actually 
did that in a score some months ago.)

In short, the lyric placement is still a bug, but I am satisfied with this 
workaround—so far.
