Can you please refer to any printed music that uses such a notation (I cannot
recall having every seen it, but on the other hand I haven't performed that
much modern music).

I have a use for this.

In the project I'm involved in (see link in signature), we split folk song melodies into individual phrases. For each phrase a separate lilypond file is generated. If a triplet is across a line break, we have a phrase with only one triplet note either at the end of the first line or at the beginning of the second line. I noticed that lilypond doesn't indicate that this single note is part of a triplet.

An example is attached.

--- phrase 1 ---
f4 a8. g16 c,4~ \times 2/3 {c8}

--- phrase 2 ---
\times 2/3 { d( e)} f8. a16 c8. d16 c4 bes8 r16

We can live with this, but it would of course be nicer if the single note was indicated as being part of a triplet.
