I think this is one of those cases where the default behaviour was a bad idea. 
Or perhaps was implemented before groups were used for much other than 
backgrounds. Other objects we need to set to the formatted width/height so why 
are groups special cased. Anyway, I would keep it simple and use `Clips to 
rect` so at least it’s easy to relate to the dictionary entry/property name.

What would really be good and resolve this to a significant extent is if the 
tooltip were multi-line with the property summary included.
