No, the enable-background property applies only to container elements.
Having said that, though, as it is a property, it can be specified
anywhere, though it may have no effect on the element on which it is
specified.  It can, however, be inherited by child elements via property
inheritance [1].  As such, it was placed where it is in the modules so
that it can be specified wherever other presentation properties can be
specified.

Hope this helps.

Scott
