|Since there is a need to be able to choose to beam or not, it's nice to know as many ways to beam or not. Whether it is common practice or not is not really the question at hand, but how to avoid beaming. I suppose it is good to offer all possible methods.|
The JW Change plugin is another way to beam/unbeam groups.
When I am creating teaching materials, for example, I often need to create notation for study that requires different notational examples not necessarily following "rules". For example, if I want to show flagged notes for students to hand copy, so they can practice drawing flags, I don't want beams. Since we may not know the need at hand, it might be good to merely answer the immediate question.

|Just curious: why do you like beaming to syllables? If you look at old manuscripts, you can understand why it was necessary, since it would have otherwise been impossible to see where the syllables belonged, but with syllables exactly under the notes to which they're attached and hyphens making lyric placement clear, it's not only unnecessary but it generally makes it more difficult to see the rhythmic hierarchy in a measure. After all, why should singers see music differently than the rest of the music world? In the case of complex melismas, don't slurs show the lyric placement clearly enough?|
