The issue with Finale and Sibelius exporting is user overrides.  I can drag a 
markup over the last note in my score to be in the position of the title and 
it'll look just fine in Finale, but LilyPond will have no clue what to do with 
it.  The nice thing about LilyPond is that, most often, things are what they 
are (titles are actually titles, etc.)
