BTW, slightly tangential, but have you seen section 4.5.5 on Proportional notation, written by Trevor Bača? There would be no need to repeat this.

Sure -- I've even tried using that functionality in one or two pieces.
:-)  Incidentally, what's described there is only a subset of
proportional notation forms -- is there any potential/possibility with Lilypond for the 'true' proportional notation where stems are not given and note lengths are indicated by lines proceeding from the notehead?

Not as far as I know.

To the general point, there are lots of contemporary notation issues
already addressed in the docs, but they're spread out and not
necessarily all easy to find -- one of the motivations for the proposed section is to have one single 'contemporary music' space to guide people
to the right sections of the existing manuals.

Great, that's exactly the purpose of the "References" subsection in
each of the sections of Chapter 2 in the NR.

I'll start working on this, bit by bit -- if it's OK to submit stubs I
will probably sketch out a form for the section and fill in later.

Stubs are fine, but make them visible rather than commented out,
perhaps followed by "TBC" (to be completed).  You could do this
in the Turkish section too - I'm sure that's what Graham meant.
