The thread has veered into musicology, which is unnecessary, since LilyPond's 
input language already has ways to express both ties and slurs as the composer 
or editor intends.

The question is (approximately) for a non-horizontal tie, is it practically 
acceptable to have the engraver create a Slur grob instead of a Tie grob, or 
would it be better to expand the Tie interface so that it can be adjusted like 
a Slur, or would it be better to create an entirely new type of grob, or …?

I think (not having tested it) that coding with both a tie and a slur and using 
\once \omit Tie might work around the issue in cases where slurs are not 
already involved.

The decision isn't so much "thus shall it be" as "assuming any of these could 
be made to work (which might not be true), which would be preferred?"
