As you have noticed, \harmonic only works within a chord. I'm not sure why
the program is designed this way, since it's perfectly valid notation practice to notate a harmonic with a single diamond shaped note head, i.e. with only a single note in the chord. You have exactly the same problems with fingerings if you want
to specify a fingering to the left or right of a note head, then
    \set fingeringOrientations = #'(left)
doesn't work, whereas
    \set fingeringOrientations = #'(left)
gives the desired output. This may seem to be completely unrelated but it turns out that the same engraver handles both fingerings and harmonics in the current

I can easily add a few lines to the manual, clarifying that \harmonic only works within a chord, but I think that it would be better to fix the implementation.

Instead, if I write it as an "one-note chord":


It works. Is the program suposed to work like that? I'm a 2.6.0 version user.
Perhaps you fixed it in later versions.
