I agree. More flexibility in alignment of outside-staff objects would be good.

Since my programming skills are rather limited (the learning curve
with LilyPond is pretty steep), the best I can come up with is yet
another context property `alignToNote', which allows a break-alignable
grob to switch allegiance between breakable objects and note columns.
I'm probably committing terrible crimes against programming, but it
seems to work. :)

I don't sounds quite complicated.  In any case, there's
already a convenient method of aligning to a note column via
currentMusicalColumn, which the Metronome_mark_engraver uses.
