Unfortunately that breaks when <lb> includes an important
attribute, such as an @n that should get displayed or an important
if its of interest, when I make HTML or Word from TEI, I basically ignore <lb/> if its the first or last child of its parent, and turn the others into line breaks. But that is accepting the conversion is lossy, for display.
It does look to me like silence on the issue has led to different
assumptions. And it's the variety of assumptions that force the
potential lossiness in downstream processing. We TEI consumers can't
know which interpretation was adopted, so we find some heuristic and
hope the losses are small, infrequent, and immaterial.
