Please dont rename the cross head, it has a name, predating any usage

I think Lilypond should propose both, the "official", somewhat abstract name
for a glyph, a symbol, whatever, but the stuff should also be accessible via the musicians' term. When I read the ly source of a file, it is self-explaining if I read
\deadNote ... , so as a guitarist, I know what to do.

I know, a similar discussion has been on the mailing list, so I don't want to repeat everything. In my opinion, there should be as much synonyms for any given function as needed to allow easier music encoding (not engraving, as seen from the musicians' side).
