Glad you asked, because now I can brag about how well-chosen my example was ;-).  The gestural pitch should be a minor seventh higher than the written pitch (because of <octave>).  But how you encode it, it's a fourteenth higher.  This means, for some pitches, you'd end up with a different values in @oct and @oct.ges (for Bb Instruments, that's all pnames except for c), in some you don't.
