This case does not generally arise in subtitles and captions; if it did, I would expect a gap in the background areas, i.e. the rule to align the span background before and after edges with the line area before and after edges would still seem acceptable to me. The alternative might be a very large background block containing no foreground content.

To flip that around, what if someone wanted that background block to be contiguous in the block progression direction but tight to line areas in the inline progression direction? I don't see how that could sensibly be done - it's asking to align not with the current line area's before and after edges but the previous line area's after edge and the next  line area's before edge. I suppose that could be another keyword option, but I'd give it lower priority.
