Entirely replacing the actual syntax would not be desirable in my opinion. 
Consider the case when it is used in a “global” part/variable in an orchestral 
score that usually contains rehearsal marks, tempo, key and time signature 
changes and such. As I understand it having \partial to accept only music as 
argument would have to move to each part, which would introduce unnecessary 
typing and disrupt the logic of the structure. Sure it can be worked around, 
but I would see it as a step backwards. Or have I misunderstood?
