I consider it a bug, as the attached real-world example shows.  In the
last bar, the markup attached to the skip is even further to the right
than the full rest itself!

What about the following:

  a. If we have a full-bar skip like `s1' or `s8*7', position it
     similar to a quarter note, namely at the beginning of the bar.

  b. If we really need a full-bar skip which behaves like a full-bar
     rest, using a yet-to-be-introduced `S1' or `S8*7'.

In most cases, only a. is necessary, I believe.
