This, I think, is related to a long-standing request I have: upper spacing 
parameters. As far as I can tell, Lily only has parameters for the space that 
FOLLOWS a context (with the obvious exception of nonstaff-relatedstaff spacing 
when staff-affinity is not #DOWN) — but I often want to set (e.g.) a padding 
value for a certain staff, regardless of what appears above it (e.g., in a 
frenched score).

I end up just manipulating these kind of things using the edition engraver — 
that would be my suggestion in this case — but I’m intruiged to hear how you 
end up solving it.
