Do you really mean that you've used, say,

 a b[] c

within your score?  Currently, this is an undocumented feature, so you
are use something from the darker corners of lilypond...

Darker corners, indeed.


The two snippets attached here come from the commission I just finished up
in February ...

In general I'm using the two-sided nibs or stubs to indicate a lone note
(ie, preceded and followed by a rest) sitting within a governing beam. (100%
of the beaming in my scores like this is manual.)

Maybe a quick mention of c[ ] in the manual could alert other modern(ist)
composers of the availability of the feature?

Happy to do so.  Could you please provide a minimal snippet to show
how this might be used in practice?  The examples you attached are
too complex to illustrate the point, and the simplistic examples I've tried
don't look good.
