It's fairly new, that's all.  And I certainly concede that the fermata
instead of fine is legal, but I have never seen it and I think
that most would not understand it.

Maybe it's more helpful to list what would be totally understood
today and might serve as a minimum acceptable

D.C,, D.S,, the coda sign, and fine will be adequate for
almost everything.  The coda may appear as an
alternative ending instead of as part3 at the end.

part1 codasignwithvoltabracket coda  fine part2  D.C.


part1 codasign part2 "D.C." codasign coda

are both played:

part1 part2 part1 coda 

The former might be preferred if the coda were only a
few measures long.

Don't grasp the nettle firmly.
Just let go of the damn thing.
