Well, it is again an issue of "incest tabu" where the details of the
combining skylines make best sense for combining _heterogenous_
elements: for arranging text with text, you don't want to have things
get too closely or even interleaved.  But having a single high letter
"interlock" with a note stem can improve the overall arrangement.
