Background sync can mean a few different things. Do you mean something like:
1) You launch Scrivener on your iDevice.
2) Scrivener opens *immediately* (no obvious sync). You open your project, navigate to the document you want to edit, and start making changes,
3) Concurrent to step 2, Scrivener syncs with DropBox in the background.
4) When the DropBox sync is complete, if the document you are in the middle of changing happens to have updates from DropBox, Scrivener automagically merges your changes with the DropBox updates *or* if unable to do the merge creates a conflict document.
I believe this is how OneNote handles it. Is this what you are looking for? If not, please clarify for L&L.

Google docs and Microsoft Office (and many others) have tackled the problems of sinking offline documents and simultaneous editing for a while, I'm sure their implementation is robust enough, and doing something similar to what they do is a possibility.

Background App Refresh in iOS has been around for generations of iOS distributions. To say that iOS doesn't have true multitasking is misleading and flat out wrong.
