I would not proceed in this way.
The lack of a cautionary pedal on a bracket could be seen as an enhancement
only in a self-referential context, which doesn't make sense to me. A
proper way to proceed is to check what modern professional engravers do
with it, and check as a consequence if Lilypond is coherent with them (->
common practice)
AFAIK nobody uses a bracket without a starting word in professional
engraving, it would have too many bad side effects. And opening an issue as
an enhancement IMHO will weaken the urgency of fixing this.
