Each signal has its own purpose.  Delivering SIGTTIN where there is
no tty input for background process does not seem a good idea.
For instance, tar itself does not handle neither of these signals (it
doesn't have to, anyway), so when delivered any of them it will simply
stop, as their semantics dictates (see man 7 signal).  That's perhaps
not what you want.
