Not so small. I can clearly see them with A4/Letter set to my screen
width. Thanks for that, Klaus.

So Andrew's example has the barlines set transparent, and the example
in LM doesn't bother to remove the Span_bar_engraver so the dots are
hidden underneath the barlines. And I saw no change because the lyrics
wouldn't collide with those barlines.

Isn't 0.05 rather large? Before I learnt that I could typeset non-ascii
spaces to push things aside, I used to use "invisible" dots defined with
invisibledot = \lyricmode { \once \override LyricText.font-size = #-19 "." }
which are almost invisible at 1600% but can be seen for checking. Any
less, like -25, and I'm down to one pixel which is trying for my eyes,
and by -33 all visual trace has gone.
