hehehe, very clever -- however far-fetched :-)

I wish we could have a "common notation" section that would deal with
the voice as an instrument (for instance, the parlato notehead example
is quite good; we could also add the snippet, etc.)

This "common notation" section would also mention the use of lyrics,
and refer to lyric-specialized further sections:

2.1.1 Common notation for vocal music
  References for vocal music
     (noteheads, characters' names etc)
  References for lyrics
     (points to NR 2.1.2, 2.1.3, LM 2.4 etc)
  Vocal-specific staff notation
     (ancient clefs, incipits, whatever)

2.1.2 Entering lyrics
    (all sections thereof)

2.1.3 Aligning lyrics to a melody
    (all sections thereof)

2.1.4 Stanzas
    (all sections thereof)

2.1.5 Specific styles of vocal music
    (gregorian, whatever; may point back to 2.1.1 Vocal-specific staff notation)

I am confident that we will eventually find a good solution :-)
