P.S.: make no mistake: this is a large conceptual change, but if done
correctly, I would expect minimal impact on existing documents.

One thing I like about this is that we currently have
define-music-function, define-event-function, define-scheme-function...
If Scheme can be used for everything, we don't need
define-contextmodification-function and so on.  We don't need
define-markup-function, define-duration-function,

That can of worms can just stay shut.
