    With CSS, it's possible to manipulate the bounding box in order to align to baseline - which highlights why this is a dumb enhancement. Type should be aligned from baseline to baseline, not from baseline to cap-height.

      What I'm imagining is particularly tall ascenders/low descenders that will crash into other lines when we're adjusting spacing to ignore the entire typeface area.

      I'm guessing this enhancement was aimed more toward iOS & Android designers.
