That’s true and I think that this is one of LilyPonds strengths as it allows to be very flexible with transposing, quoting, changing key signatures etc.

By the way, how would one write a g natural in b major, if ‘g’ lead to a g sharp? ‘ges’? But if so, how to write a ges?

P.S.: There is a very ugly hack abusing modalTranspose to achieve something similar so that b c d e f becomes b cis dis e fis. But it breaks when you want to use pitches other than those from the original b major scale like above.
