I might have missed something here, but: in what circumstances can a pitch-name and a variable-name both be legal?

Inside a music _expression_, if it comes immediately after a backslash, it can't be a pitch-name, and if it doesn't come immediately after a backslash, then it can't be a variable-name. Not inside a music _expression_, it can't be a pitch-name.

When there's a sequence of 26 or fewer things that need names, sometimes I use letters, e.g. variables for music expressions pertaining to the 3rd movement's 2nd violin part would begin cVnb.
