Oh, I agree it would be a nightmare…

But “there’s no such thing” just isn’t true: the snippet below shows how to get two separate slurs covering the same set of notes, and from there, making a “composite slur” would be just a matter of [lots and lots of painful, trial-and-error, and almost certainly fragile] shaping work.

I remember a snippet written by Mike Solomon which created "contemporary vibrato" indications by chaining together curves.  It is no longer in the LSR.  It was removed, I believe, during the LSR update to 2.14.
