I have a mind to generalize the commands for Gregorian divisiones so that they 
create breathing signs, bar lines, or scripts over bar lines, according to 
context properties.  That will serve this case and more, and requires no new 
terminology.  \section and \finalis would be synonyms, but the other three can 
be left to the user to name as they please, for example,

  phraseDiv = \divisioMinima
