I don't really understand: you want to put braille code next to
staves. Should the braille texts be synchronized with musical events
or not? Or are they to be synchronized only at line breaks (ie. at the
left end of a system), and then follow their own formatting?

What happened with the incremental path of starting with a \markup
command that prints braille dots?
