Isn’t it fundamental to performing a multi-stanza song?

OK, how would you classify that?  A bug?  A deficiency of the design?  Working 
as designed but in need of a better diagnostic message?

I thought I might automate serializing multiple stanzas for MIDI output simply 
by turning simultaneous music into sequential music.

In my template:
 \tag #'folded <<
   \context Lyrics = “1” …
   \context Lyrics = “2” …
   \context Lyrics = “3” …

In my score:
 \unfoldRepeats \unfoldFoldedSimultaneousMusic <<
    \include “template.ly”
 \midi {}
