Comment #27 on issue 4076 by address@hidden: allow bn for B-natural in English

If you consider it "quite useful for finding and repairing input errors", and "any mixed-in 'a' would raise suspicions", then this would call for a notename language "english-n" which would _only_ allow "an" (where is the point in having suspicious notes that are not flagged?). Your example would then have to be written as

\displayLilyMusic \transpose dn an {dn4 fs an cs'}

If you feel that you would prefer using this input style, making a language for it seems feasible. If you just want certain piece-dependent notes to change names, one could create a suitably half-naturalized English language on-demand. However, this would cause problems when trying to cut&paste into a different half-naturalized English language.

You call this a "superior entry method", but indeed it seems more like an entry method rather than a reliable way of expressing music: it would seem that using some editor script to verify/finalize your passages depending on the particular accidentals you want to see naturalized explicitly in input would make more sense.
