That's up to you. All I hope is that we'll manage to implement it eventually!

We can regroup the different definitions in a common file; maybe we
could first define a base "language", and then add several definitions
for optional supersets (five-steps or seven-steps scales, etc.) over
this base. LilyPond easily supports note names, special modes, and
even non-standard intervals!

OK; looking forward to hearing from you guys! If you're serious about
that, I'll open a tracker page for Balinese support, in order to keep
track of this feature implementation.
