Of course. Obvious once you see it (or are told about it). I was keyed on using a NUL instrument & I didn't think to use a simple volume=0 approach.

The MIDI standard has no such instrument, so this mechanism cannot be
used for this purpose.  You can set skipTypesetting to ##t but that will
also omit the skipped times.  Maybe setting Staff.midiExpression to 0
might work?
