Perhaps she hoped that Finale and/or Sibelius would eventually add the capability and then she could explain it in the second edition. Or Finale and or Sibelius would never add it, it would die a peaceful death, and she would never have to explain it.
You might be right, but since 'faking it' is a relatively simple manual process in both Sibelius and Finale, at least for a single instance in a musical example, I find it even more likely that she either 'forgot' to mention it, or didn't see the need to.
