This distinction becomes relevant if there are multiple dal segnos in
one piece.

I think I need to dig through my scores for a particularly
brain-wrecking mixture of multiple dal segnos I remember.  It would be
interesting to see how much we are still lacking to represent that
particular monstrosity (I don't think I have figured out with confidence
how to actually play it as a human, either) to LilyPond.
