It seems that the properties are reset at the end of each
(de)crescendo, so it seems you have to specify it again
every time. However, you can save same key strokes by using the
predefined macro \cresc. For example
\cresc c d e f \!
is equivalent to
c \setTextCresc \< d e f \!

That's useful info, but why is
\cresc c
equivalent to
c \setTextCresc \<

? Why not go with a postfix \cresc? (thus "\cresc" = "\setTextCresc \<" )

Question to the bug-lilypond mailing list:
- Why is it done this way (I see there's a comment in
 ly/spanners-init.ly related to the same question)

No clue.

- Why isn't this documented, if this is the way it should be?

No clue.  :)

If this is the way it should be, I'm happy to document it. For now, I think
we should wait to hear from Han-Wen and Jan in a week.
