As for me the attached settings work quite well. In particular your Lyric
spacing settings didn't produce good results when lyrics were centered
between two staves, so I changed them.

Good.  I was expecting that you would increase the 'padding between individual 
words in Lyrics and individual notes or dynamics on the lower staff. This keeps 
the lyrics away from dynamics for lower vocal staff (image).  But you made 
smaller the 'minimum-distance between a Lyrics line and the next lower staff.  
If there is a staff below the lyrics with no notes or dynamics, the lyrics 
could get very close (second image).

I think we still want enough 'minimum-distance to the lower staff so that 
Lyrics are always a little closer to the Staff they are associated with, than 
they are to the next lower staff.   Is that what you intended, or do people 
reading choral music like to have lyrics centered between the two staves?

My other question is about your reduction in the stretchability between 
systems.  Was the goal to let the staves separate more (maybe to have more 
space around the Lyrics) or was the goal to keep the gap between systems small?

I suggested the higher stretchability so that orchestral scores did not change spread 
out excessively, but they still look okay with your lower stretchability suggestion 
(third image, and the conductors among us might comment on the spacing of the whole 
score <>)
