Rules that have evolved in the course of the 19th and 20th century and
are certainly alien to the 18th.
If you’re trying to turn this into an ‘authoritative’ representation as
LilyPond code, fortunately there’s the option of coding it as a dotted
note and if necessary displaying it with ties using the
Completion_heads_engraver – a great tool for ancient music.
And once there is a LilyPond engraver that can produce the original way
of writing it, there will be no need of adjusting the content.
