As usual, Mats is right on.

Paul is also perceptive in recognizing that the documentation needs more
specificity.  It seems that a \layout within a \score accepts all the rather
well documented \paper commands but ignores most of them.  Section 7.5.11
"Page layout" could give more detail, especially all default values.
Section 4.7.1 "Additional parameters" seems to list \layout commands, but
that's not clear.  Now, using these blocks requires much trial and error.

I believe the User Manual would be improved with more complete information
for \paper, \layout and also "set" commands applicable to page layout.

If that isn't in the manual it should be.
