Oops ... my bad here ... I've just seen the sentence about MIDI output and how 
it doesn't affect printing.

But I would still respectfully suggest that it *should* affect printing, it 
seems to me we have here a generic solution being applied over-narrowly to a 
specific problem.

Let's say I want to enter a Bb part in Bb. If I understand things correctly, I 
now correct the MIDI output to true pitch by using a \transposition statement 
in the note *input* section, but I correct the printed output to true pitch by 
using a \transpose statement in the *output* section. That doesn't make sense 
to me :-(
