You know, I don't think there's any great obstacle to allowing a
rest-that-is-a-rest to have a settable height on the staff, or fine


It would be nice to have the same fine control for rests :)

Usually, I produce the LilyPond document and look what is
wrong. After that, I apply the fine position rules. LilyPond has
a habit to move rest here and there if there are several voices,
unless the rests have been a fixed position.
