Thanks Simon, is there any reason

1. We require the \cadenzaOn (for the sake of simplifying the example as
much as possible in the doc

2. Is it *always* necessary to override the word space in the case of
when syllables belong to one word or is this

i. a specific type of case
ii, are there any other ways to do this without using an '\override'
(again for the sake of a more complete explanation and perhaps
additional example)
