So you're only adding your tempo markings to one context? And now you're going
to manually add it to a second context? What happens if you change the tempo
marking? You'll have to (manually) change it in both places, yes?

There are several such functions floating around: the edition-engraver (EE) of
course supports this kind of thing; David K once wrote an "addAt" (I think?)
function; and I remember at least one other attempt some years ago.

The EE handles that situation; I don't remember if the addAt function does.
Another possibility — essentially exactly what you're asking about — would be
to write a [Scheme?] engraver that checked all contexts in a score for a
MetronomeMark event, and added any event found to all "flagged" contexts
automatically. Maybe look into that option!
Hope that helps,
