Huh, you're right.  Even when it comes to the snippet list in the
docs, ragged-right isn't added by default.

Hmm, this is annoying.  I'm a big fan of consistency, but it's not
worth adding \layout{ragged-right=##t} to every snippet.  I don't
have any particular ideas about this at the moment.

On second thought, I could accept this in editorial, since it uses

Oh, warning: the %verbatim is all messed up here, probably due to
the header.  Take a look at this.

... besides, this snippet is *not* from the cello suites.  What
happened here?

NR 1.7 is not "anything editorial".  NR 1.7 is the section that
contains the left-over stuff that didn't fit into anything else.
I've asked for other names multiple times, but so far nobody has
suggested anything else.

For example, we don't include phrasing slurs in 1.7, even though
that's clearly an editorial-related thing.

Other than the dual meanings of "editorial", I don't think there's
a conflict.  Although I'm really curious as to how you think is editorial-related, with either meaning of
the term.
