Looking into this a bit deeper I see that this is implemented - but it
is buried away and wrapped in MIDI jargon (the MIDI instrument is a
"program" in MIDI-speak, and you will find a command to change the
program in the Object Menu ▶ Directives ▶ Playback ▶ MIDI menu).

To make this a bit more user-friendly I've added this command to that

Command: Change Timbre (Instrument Sound)
Changes the MIDI instrument for the following notes, optionally
typesetting some text here. Use for pizz. trem. etc.
Location: Object Menu ▶ Directives ▶ Playback ▶ MIDI
Internal Name: ChangeTimbre

What I haven't done is to program looking up your installed soundfont
to help you find the appropriate program number: you can do this by
this rigmarole (if you don't have a GM manual):

Use the command:
Command: Built-in Staff Properties
Change the built-in properties of the current staff
Location: Object Menu ▶ Staffs/Voices ▶ Staff Properties
Internal Name: StaffProperties

and select the MIDI tab and look in the Instrument list for your chosen
instrument (e.g tremolo strings) and set that.
Then run the command again and look at the number that has now been
assigned to Program. This is the number you need to set in the command
to switch instrument sound.
