After Neil's comment to the issue, I'm not certain if you still want
to propose this solution.  But if you do,

+\override Score.BarNumber #'break-visibility = #'#(#f #t #t)

This means it's snippet-territory, not main text.  I could be
convinced to let it go if you added a
  % show all bar numbers
above it (as you did later), for pedagogical reasons (even though it's
contrary to the strict interpretation of the doc policy, our doc
policy has a "notwithstanding" clause[1]).

[1] err, sorry, Canadian political joke that won't translate.  Our
Charter of Rights and Freedom has a clause that basically states that
the government can temporarily (5 years) ignore our basic rights
(freedom of expression, religion, thought, belief, peaceful assembly,
association), as well as legal guarantees (fair trial, representation,
etc) if it really wants to.

However, I'm really not fond of the incrBarNum stuff.  In the first
place, the names should be written in full.  In the second place, this
is really getting into snippet territory.

And the whole thing reads like Learning rather than Notation, which
you already noted.

I see two options:
1) wait for more clarity about the various workarounds for repeat issues.
2) dump the whole thing inside @knownissues without any more changes.
(the doc policy doesn't apply to @knownissues)
3)  rewrite the material somehow.  I'm not encouraging this option
given the lack of clarity about #1, but I present it for completeness.
