Just in case you didn't notice: There is a command \octave in lilypond, which 
addresses the same problem, but isn't as good as what you suggest.

I don't understand.. do you have an example? I have not been able to spot any 
real example where \lyricsto is not enough.

It is possible to use | in lyrics. I do it all the time. What you have to 
observe, is that you should see | as a prefix operator. It can only be added 
right before syllables that are sung on the first beat of each bar. This is 
different from other notations, since bars can start and end with rests.

There are also bugs; you may sometimes get incorrect barchecks warnings during 
midi output.
