That could be difficult to implement.  WebKit's heuristic right now is purely based off examination of lines within a single block.  It can't detect overlap across nested blocks.  Detecting that you overlap other lines or that you can fit in the padding area of a single block is easy, but being willing to spill into the margin area is way more complicated (the block might be clipped, margins collapse and may be nested, a block might have a border and then you probably need to expand, etc.).
