Thank you for your feedback. The CSSWG has addressed your concerns in the upcoming publication of the CSS 2.1 specification[1].

The CSSWG resolved to add the following text to section 10.6.1:
  # In the following definitions, for inline non-replaced elements,
  # the box used for alignment is the box whose height is the
  # 'line-height' (containing the box's content area and the
  # half-leading on each side).  For all other elements, the box used
  # for alignment is the margin box.

We hope this closes your issue.

Please respond before 14 March, 2011 if you do not accept the current resolution.
