We had a similar discussion already last August, but this question was not 
raised back then:

There are ways to move dynamics to the left/right, let it fall down towards 
the staff, once it has left the skyline of the note, or even move the dynamic 
inside the staff (with the drawback that the part of the dynamic that is still 
outside the staff will NOT count towards the skyline). The 2.10 version is at 
the LSR
and the 2.12 version is attached. 

Now, my problems with these solutions are that

- -) The y-extent is set to an invalid value in dynamicsAllInside  (so it 
basically has 0 height and is ignored). Unfortunately, this causes a warning:

Programmierfehler: cannot align on self: empty element
Fortsetzung, die Daumen drücken

- -) All shifting is done by offsets from the final position.

My main problem is connected to the last one: I have a large score, where I 
need to move about every dynamic sign slightly inside the staff. I want them 
to align properly vertically, i.e. all dynamic signs should start between the 
topmost and the second staff line. Is there any way to move the dynamic sign 
to an explicit position? I.e. the last two dynamics in the attached file show 
this problem: The correct offset has to be different for every note, since 
each note has a different skyline and causes a different vertical position for 
the dynamic. Both final \f in the attached score use the same vertical offset, 
but of course they are placed at different positions relative to the staff.

Is there any way to position a dynamic sign at an explicit staff-relative (not 
note-relative) vertical position?
