Outside of the inline comments found in scm/font.scm, this is true. Actually, I didn't know it was even used in the docs at all. The changes page only hints at why this function exists with this statement:
"Support for making it easier to use alternative ‘music’ fonts other than the default Emmentaler in LilyPond has been added. See http://fonts.openlilylib.org/ for more information."
...which needs to be updated anyway. My fault, really. Much thanks to Urs for including this statement.
Thinking ahead towards the potential of making LP SMuFL-compliant, I also wonder if this might be a good time to create a couple of other public scheme functions that make it easier to use music fonts that don't have more than one design size. I've tested successfully such functions on my own machine and think they would be a useful addition as we try to attract more potential power users in the industry.
