I've found some problems in Instrument_name_engraver that make severe
limitations on ChoirStaff (GrandStaff etc.) "instrument names".

- \RemoveEmptyStaffContext does not remove instrument name on these staves.

Of course not, since \RemoveEmptyStaffContext only redefines what
happens to an ordinary Staff, not to a ChoirStaff or whatever.
The solution is to do the same redefinition of the ChoirStaff as
the \RemoveEmptyStaffContext does to the Staff context. See my
recent email on the same problem for RhythmicStaffContext (Graham
did some clarifications in the manual too).

OK, that's fine. I'm just always thinking some OO way :-) (

- Lyrics staff gets counted for setting the position of the instrument
name in situations like this:
\new ChoirStaff << \new Staff { c c } \new Lyrics { La -- la } \new
Staff { R1 } >>
It is a problem if the empty staff is removed.

Seems more like a philosophical question on if the lyrics should
be viewed as a part of the ChoirStaff or not, but I see your point.

Actually this is an aesthetical problem :-) And if I want the lyrics to be in the middle, I have to declare it between the the two staves, don't I?

\new ChoirStaff << \new Staff { c c } \context Lyrics = mylyrics { s1 } \new Staff { R1 } >>
