See comment.  I am currently working in the guts of the context code, so I 
could try to improve this while I’m there, but I would like to hear 
confirmation that it is a bug first.  Thanks.

\version "2.19.80" % the version I tested
\score {
  \new StaffGroup = "A" \with { shortInstrumentName = "XXX" } <<
    \new StaffGroup = "B" {

      %% I expected this to change shortInstrumentName in the
      %% StaffGroup with ID "A", but it does not appear to.
      \context StaffGroup = "A" {
        \set StaffGroup.shortInstrumentName = "OK"
