Quite often I add general annotations such as tempo changes, 
ritardando ... separately using text scripts on spacing notes.
This makes it easy to typeset both scores and separate parts.

I could also imagine situations like Urtext editions where you
want to add bowings, some articulation marks and so on separately.

The main reason I haven't submitted that many bugreports recently
is that I haven't had the time to work anything with Lilypond.
I expect to do a major music typesetting project this spring
but it may take some months before I get started.

Is a good starting point
or should we start a new list from scratch?

Also, we shouldn't forget about the documentation, both verifying 
that the existing documentation is up-to-date and thinking about
