I wonder how one would encode harmonics and scordatura where there are different notation approaches with potentially differing sounding and written pitch?  A combination of @loc and @pname/@oct is tempting, but as soon as there are accidentals involved, that doesn't work.  @ploc/@oloc feel more appropriate but won't properly work with accidentals either.
