Brilliant idea!  I'm not aware of efforts in this direction.

Not that I know.

you could do

        \context Lyrics=myLyrics { \skip 1*2 }
        \new Staff {
         << c4
            \context Lyrics=myLyrics \lyrics { blah } >>

         << d4
            \context Lyrics=myLyrics \lyrics { blah } >>
        } >>

but  I doubt whether you would like it.
