Overlays are not editable with kill and yank,
so text properties are better.

I wonder why the display engine does not take 'rase' into account
when reserving space above the baseline.

It is enough for only one line.
With blank areas, emacs can display fewer lines.

For example in my environment, the form below displays 9 lines.
(insert (propertize "1\n2\n3\n4\n5\n6\n7\n8\n9\n"
        'display '(height 5)))

And the form below displays 7 lines.
(insert (propertize "1\n2\n3\n4\n5\n6\n7\n8\n9\n"
        'display '((raise -1.3) (height 5))))
