Some documents make clear that these characters are meant to be used by application software.

The initial proposal for the Musical Symbols range
http://www.lib.virginia.edu/artsandmedia/dmmc/Music/UnicodeMusic/
and the Unicode TR-27
http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr27/tr27-4.html
(where is the current equivalent of this?)
both explain this.

In principle however, some limited support could be built into the font, via some substitution lookup feature.

For example, as simple beamed quarter note could be constructed.

So far, the needed features don't seem to be working in any environment at my disposal however. So this may have to wait.

(For Kim Bastin)

I do not know whether 1d173 and 1d174 (begin/end beam) actually work, or if there is any provision for double, triple etc. beams...
