What that amounts to is to attach a directive to the staff that you want the alternate endings to appear that will prefix the staff with \with { \consists "Volta_engraver" }, e.g.

(d-DirectivePut-staff-prefix "VoltaEngraver" "\\with { \\consists \"Volta_engraver\" }")

note the doubling of the \'s because they are inside quotes " "

Question is, is it useful? - you can always use a "Staff for Marks" if you want to print parts and don't want to repeat the alternate signs in each.

A look into the Lilypond documentation shows that this can be controlled with the Volta_engraver. See http://lilypond.org/doc/v2.18/Documentation/notation/long-repeats#normal-repeats under Selected Snippets, Adding volta brackets to additional staves.

I've looked into this, and copying them to other bars is only useful if you want to print a part - by default, they only appear above the topmost part. That is, they are in the same category as "Marks".
This will be because it is the standard music typesetting practice (i.e. it is LilyPond's default, not something Denemo chooses).
I don't know how easy it would be to tell LilyPond to output the first and/or second time markings above subsequent parts - a question for the LilyPond user list if you really want to do it.
Of course, the syntax to do this can be added to Denemo if it is useful to anyone.

Maybe the user does want to have 1st and 2nd bars only above the first staff (e.g. to save space). Thus I suggest to ask the user whether the 1st and 2nd bars should be inserted in all staves or only the first one.

only inserts in one stave. Copying them to the remainder of a multi-stave piece is not intuitive. Would be better if they were automatically inserted.
