Ah, okay. That's what I though. Out of interest: At the time when
these elements get written into the SVG file, do they know about their
mutual relationships? E.g., does a beam know which note heads it
belongs to (or vice versa)?

Following my question above, here is another random idea: Would it be
possible to (perhaps optionally) set the "id" attributes of the
elements to something meaningful from which at least the function of
this element could be deduced, like "staffline01" or "barline42" or
something similar? This could be a first step to enable some
postprocessing. BTW, I'm not saying that you should implement this.
I'm just interested whether it would be possible.

Yes, I do (and apparently I'm not alone). :-)


P.S.: What's all this about text element being rasterized or converted
to paths? I can edit them as regular text elements in Inkscape without
