[Bug 8034] It appears that there is no way to draw more than one line of text per call to fillText/strokeText, so what is the point of discarding any line-height value set in the font attribute?

EDITOR'S RESPONSE: This is an Editor's Response to your comment. If you are
satisfied with this response, please change the state of this bug to CLOSED. If
you have additional information and would like the editor to reconsider, please

Status: Rejected
Change Description: no spec change
Rationale: The point is to not confuse authors by making it seem like there is
something going on with the line-height when, as you say, there's no way to
have more than one line anyway. Also, it means we don't have to worry about
text alignment modes that relate to the line box height or inline box height
rather than the em box height.
