As far as I understand, the point of \transposition is that you can make
a printed version of the music and a MIDI version of the same music
without having to make two separate \score{...} sections (one with
\transpose and one without). In other words, \transposition solves
a completely different problem than \transpose. Of course, if this is
unclear in the documentation, it should be improved.

It's slightly hairier. Classical brass parts, esp. Horn and Clarinet
parts, tend to change transpositions during a piece. You cannot
capture that with a \score and \transpose.
Do you mean and keep the midi working correctly? Otherwise I just have the A and Bb clarinet, for example, parts in separate (as many as it takes) definitions which I combine with appropriate "transpose"s in the score block. I am a woodwind doubler and can handle all kinds of variations with just "transpose"s in the score block.

Right now I don't have working midi so I just trust my very experienced eye for that.
