The summary as edited september 30 IMHO seems to set up the necessary
rules for contemporary notation. There is, however, another aspect of
accidentals which is not - necessarily - covered by the summary: in the
case of MIDI output from Lilypond special care must be taken when there
are multiple voices in one staff. An accidental introduced in *one*
voice must affect all subsequent instances of the note in question
(according to the summary rules) in all voices of that staff but without
explicitly printing an accidental symbol at the first occurance of the
accidental in the *other* voice(s).
