Yes, quite annoying indeed.

I guess this is not possible the way LilyPond is currently made, since
the only way seems to be to use BeamForbidEvent. Maybe one way would
be to recode the whole Auto_beam_engraver to create such things as
BeamStartEvent and BeamEndEvent... but that's simply not gonna happen

Yes. So long for implementing this in the sources; nevertheless I'll
add it to the LSR anyway... unless you have another idea how LilyPond
could do that in a smarter way?
