So is this a bug or is it really an enhancement request/feature (i.e. is the 
code expected to do this or is it just a poorly chosen name for a function)?

IMO it’s really a bug for the following reasons:

1. The behaviour of \magnifyStaff is inconsistent, it depends on the order of staves. 2. There are several horizontal spacing issues (position of clef, bar lines/span bars, …) that are really ugly, therefore \magnifyStaff is practically unusable in these cases.

I cannot imagine that Mark (who wrote that function) intended either of these. According to the doc string a change in horizontal spacing *is* intended but there haven’t been any regtests that test simultaneous staves of different sizes.

Of course, maybe I’m wrong and \magnifyStaff wasn’t intended for these use cases (f. e. piano parts in chamber music) but that’s the main purpose I would use it for if I could.
