Of course, it should not include any page header or footer but it's not clear
to me if it should include other header information.

As others have explained, the current workaround is to make a dummy
(in case you're target document isn't done with texi, latex or html)
document, run lilypond-book and use the lily-xxxxxx.png or .eps files.

That's possible, but going from PS to PNG is a generic operation,
perhaps it's enough to mention the command the documentation? It's
something like

 gs -sDEVICE=png -sOutputFile="foo-%d.png"

Yes, but I've spent hours trying to figure out the details of "something like"
during the years and we also want to strip away some whitespace and
headers/footers, so I definitely think it's worth an option of its own.
