GrandStaff is used deliberately here to avoid the bar lines extending between 
the two staves, potentially crossing lyric syllables - except that I've just 
discovered the bar lines _do_ extend between the two staves, even when 
GrandStaff is used!  That needs more investigation.

Your other two points are valid, however.

As this template is obtained from the LSR you may provide a change there 
yourself and it will make its way into the docs automatically.  Go to
