This would be wrong: even if we expanded it up to make a big chapter, it
would not become reference documentation (we alreadhy have Notation Ref.
6 "Interfaces for programmers" and the Internals Reference for this), it
would remain learning material.

Certainly.  However, when we decide time has come to significantly
expand this appendix and it gets too big to remain an appendix, we'll
have to reword the reading guidelines so the reader doesn't feel he
should even read this chapter, e.g. by recommending that "all this
manual should be read from cover to cover, except the last chapter
"Scheme tutorial", that can be read later to make better use of Chapters
5 and 6 of the Notation Reference, for example."

So, why do you criticize the name "LilyPond index"?  The constraint is
that we must have a node name other than "Index", otherwise the splitted
HTML page name would clash with Top node HTML page index.html (not on
Unix systems, but on Windows).
