This is reminiscent of PMX notation, which I have used to typeset music 
scores. It isn't quite as "functional", though, since it retains a 
notion of default duration and octave that is more state-like.


Of course, notation for typesetting will be different from notation for 
performance, but it is worth looking at. --PR
