I've just been looking at some music with (mostly) Western notation and Arabic lyrics.  I don't know if it's typical, but the song at http://www.classicalarabicmusic.com/Added%20Music%20Notations/Popular%20Traditional%20-1/asl_elgharam.html provides the notation first, followed by the lyrics.  This is precisely the situation that the lyrics/lg/l construct was designed for.  Association of each syllable with the note that it starts on via @synch is sufficient for rendition of the lyrics and notation together.
