on 2nd thought, isn't this completely different from x-staff stemming
for piano chords? In piano chords, note heads from a single voice are
distributed across two staves, but form essentially one voice.

If you have stems across violin and bass staff, you want to have
separate accidentals, articulations, etc, and the stem should  rather be
a "spanning" construct, that just connects the stems of individual
instruments, right?

Yes, exactly. The notes can be separately articulated, with separate
accidentals and so on. What the notes share will be spanning stems and
a single beam.
