I have similar problems if I try to get „just the song“ from a sample that’s 
intended for e.g. piano: Ok, I don’t need that prelude, and the changes in this 
repetition’s alternate don’t concern the vocals, so do it without alternate … 
And then I see too late I need the alternative anyway, but from a different 
measure on, and afterwards I want that prelude back. So I need to change at 
least vocals and chords synchronously, if there aren’t more voices.

But I can’t imagine a way to enhance this situation with LilyPond’s text 
approach, as much as I like it otherwise. Maybe there’s a chance with 
Frescobaldi in the future.
