If I understand correctly, the system would have no trouble with this,
because it refers to the string by number, not by pitch.

Hmmm.  They would be able to read the output, but might have trouble
writing the input.  But lilypond isn't really designed to be particularly
easy to create input files for.  Someone could creat a "Denemo for Tab" for
such people.  

Personally, if I had to count frets to enter each note, I would go crazy,
but that's probably just because I don't read tab... which makes me wonder
why I'm involved in this discussion, since I neither read or write tab
(although I do write guitar music).  :)
