Well, I investigated as well. I think that the only way to solve this is to use the combination

Y-offset + \offset + 2.19

As you can see, this seems to work in 2.19

And it doesn't work in 2.18.
Correct me if I'm wrong: this is currently the *only* proper way to shift OttavaBracket if you want to avoid using extra-offset. The other methods appear to me almost unusable.

I'm going to investigate this.

\offset requires a grob property which is assigned a default value in
define-grobs.scm (from which file the IR grob reference pages are
generated). The more items that have defaults there, the better.
