Usually going out to the three bars follows the performance... :)

Useful symbols in parts like this: 🚾 (short rest), or ☕ (shortish rest), or 🍺 (not so short rest), or 🛌 (long rest).

I think after a couple of 🍺-rests goes 🚾 then 🛌. So I would be careful when notating several 🍺-rests: maybe as one 🍺-multimeasure rest?

You are definitely on to something there, OCTO! I just fear that the multimeasure thing could be a bit risky too: :n4 :n9 🍺...

Hindemith's Ludus Tonalis is a learned, contrapuntal piano work, consisting (mainly) of preludes and fugues. Probably you wouldn't expect it to be exactly funny, but here is a score, revised by the composer himself:

Whether the revision has a didactic or scientific purpose is somewhat unclear.

Needless to say, I wouldn't recommend H's approach in your Beethoven edition, John.

I've seen it before, Anders. I don't think it is an actual published revision, but some personal art work given as a gift. I found the following interesting article about it and Mendelssohn's art work:

Yes, I have restricted myself to footnote annotations in the Beethoven piano sonatas; the music is colorful enough on its own.

I haven't seen the article before, John. It was interesting in a way, explaining the significance of H's illustrations, which I appreciate. But as it goes with these things, the scientific seriousness of the project somewhat soils the subject.
