Searching the LSR does not return it, and I think it is worth to have it
in the NR.
I would sort of call it a "partcombine" for lyrics: it often happens
that a soloist shares a staff with a choir part (let's say the diva and
the soprani) when they sing alternatively, or two characters like in
Reedmace Star's example. The fact is that Lily place /two/ lines of
lyrics when the change appears on the same system.
