I agree that this is a problem.  I suppose that it may be doable to
let lilypond look at the barline specified by the user and incorporate
it into barline definition, so that
\bar "||" \break \repeat volta 2 { ... }
would produce a double bar at the end of the line, and a repeat bar at
the beginning of next line.  Other things would be probably
significantly more difficult.
Would you like to try implementing this?

It would be good to have smarter coda, segno etc. indications.  We
could improve the situation a bit by introducing dedicated commands
that would produce them, and probably defining a new grob type.  I
don't have time to do this, but if you'd like to try yourself, i could
probably provide some guidance.
