Well, but the resulting chord shows a flat, then a note and then another
note. There is no way for the reader to tell that the second (?) note is
naturalized. I think the result is misleading, and this isn't related to
any standard practices.

The workaround is of course to explicitly force the natural with bes'!,
but still I think it's wrong.

Of course the problem is that the bes is not "previous" to the b, so
LilyPond's mechanics for accidental styles don't apply. So actually I
think LilyPond should detect that two notes are on the same staff
position and then determine if they actually require the same accidental.

Same with polyphony. This is definitely wrong output:

\version "2.19.45"

\score {
    { c'' b' }
    { a' bes' }
