These from Daniel Spreadbury tell me most, I think, of what I need to

Thanks, but no thanks.

If the file format describes exactly how the finished score will appear,
what will happen with the spacing when transposing?  Presumably it is
ingrained into the file, so how will everything get retrofitted?

However, LilyPond indeed has a weakness in as far as it does not really
have a "file format".  It is an evolving input language.

If that's a "weakness", it's one I'm happy to see maintained indefinitely.
