Why is this on the bug list?

At any rate, one could make

\offset Beam.positions #'(2 . 3) \default

resolve to an override but I don't think that there is a whole lot of
motivation for having this.  I doubt people would use it a lot.

You could likely write

\offset Beam.positions #'(2 . 3) #'()

at the current point of time.  Which is similarly ugly.  Or

\offset Beam.positions #'(2 . 3) Bottom

which seems weird.  You get the drift.
