It's already possible (though not entirely trivial, as shown in Abraham's 
replies) to override the music font per grob or locally in a markup. With this 
approach, the branching happens at the level of the font. We can consider it, 
but I'm not sure it would be worth the trouble compared to simplifying the code 
required to use different fonts for different objects.
