That's basically it, though the extent would be that of the greatest
number of stacked delimiters: for example, in the Haydn snippet, the
combined extents of the SystemStartBar, Bracket and Brace in Violins I
& II.

A similar effect could be achieved by setting a negative value for
'padding (see attached image), though it might be better to allow the
option of ignoring the extra padding (or reverting to the current
behaviour with side-support-elements).  It's precisely issues like
this which prompted me to send a proof-of-concept patch first.
