In the following score, the second stanza is identical to the first one, 
except that it doesn't use lyricsto. The output is however not identical; the 
second stanza is shifted a few millimeters to the right. From reading the 
manual, I see no reason why there should be a difference.

I can imagine it could have to do with \lyricsto being clever, centering 
lyrics under noteheads instead of moments in time or something. But in that 
case, shouldn't it be documented that \lyricsto actually does a better job 
than explicit durations do?

\version "2.2.0"
\score {<<
\new Staff \context Voice=A \notes { b4 b b b }
\lyricsto A \new Lyrics \lyrics { bla4 bla bla bla }
\new Lyrics \lyrics { bla4 bla bla bla }
