This has nothing to do with what area borders and backgrounds of
cells cover.  The borders and backgrounds of cells cover the entire
height of the row (with or without the proposal) since CSS 2.1
already says that the cells all fill the row by getting extra top or
bottom padding based on the value of 'vertical-align'.
