One can change the meaning of the note names. This is done in the GHB (Great 
Highland Bagpipe) file This music is in A Mixolydian, so it defines 
note names for that. Then it is traditional to suppress the key signature in 
this bagpipe notation.

However, the music is still typeset internally in the A Mixolydian scale, and 
the key signature does not alter the values of the note names.

But if you have a heap of ABC music, which follows the convention you seem to 
want, and does not want to convert it to LilyPond notation, it might be useful.
