Any underlining behavior would remain unaffected by setting
'extend-face-background'.  If both, underlining and background are
specified, the display engine would do what it does now.

If the 'extend-face-background' is a simple boolean, yes.  If it is a
list of faces, it is largely idempotent to the face-level concept: A
user could say (by including or excluding) a face from that list
whether it should have any impact on extending the background to the
end of the window edge.  Just that the face merger would have to
process that variable if it is a list of faces while handling it in
the display engine would be sufficient for a boolean.

Didn't you mean to say "some face attributes not eligible" here ...

... because otherwise I don't see how we possibly could do that.  IIUC
the face merger would then have to decide whether "that" occurred.
