Yes, I agree with you. Measuring the distance depending on the centroid can achieve the more precise result.

I've been also considering the case that you described above. 
To cover this case, the span element is considered as the two [fragment](https://www.w3.org/TR/css-break-3/#box-fragment)s.
So inside the element's border box, the closest fragment from the edge which is on the direction of the navigation will be selected to use for calculating the distance.

In your example, if the user presses the down arrow key, from the "XXXXXXX" fragment in the second line the distance value will be calculated.
