I can only confirm this. A performance of Schubert's German Stabat Mater 
(D383) last year here in Vienna was also done using LilyPond orchestra 
material. The musicians really liked the good look of the score.

The only problems appear when trying to create good-looking full scores for 
the conductor (part combining is unusable and vertical stretching and page 
layout is also quit bad). But the orchestra material with only one-staff 
systems can really be done in a quality superior to most commercial scores.
The only problem I had with individual instrumental scores were cue notes to 
vocal voices, where you can't easily attach lyrics.
