Termination lines for trills
S5 - Suggestion
When a trill is to terminate before the end of a note, the note value should be divided to show the exact length of the trill. In addition it may be helpful to terminate the trill line with a notch (as in the second bar in the screenshot) to show that the premature cut-off is indeed intentional (not just sloppy notation).

I can't find such a glyph in SMuFL

No, I don't think there is one. I thought about using ornamentVerticalLine, but it is certainly much thinner and taller than the examples in Gould, and not intended for this purpose. I have implemented this locally drawing the notch graphically as a line - it has the advantage of allowing properties for notch height and width, but probably won't look right for handwritten fonts. This might be an OK approach until such a glyph is added to SMuFL (if it is)?
