The interaction between the different xxx-spacing variables is a little
complex and I need to document it properly. In this case, the problem is
that Lyrics are unaffected by between-staff-spacing (because they are
non-spaceable) and so your override only forces there to be one staff
unit of padding between adjacent _staves_, which is satisfied by your
example. Unfortunately, there is not yet any way to control the spacing
between Lyrics and the staff below it, which is where you really want
the extra padding AFAICT.
