If this means that it would become possible to put a
dashed line through text at approximately x or m
height, I'm for it, too. 

It would make it a lot easier to build certain kinds
of teaching materials for the lower primary grades,
where some kids need the center line to drag their
attention to the idea that size and extension of
risers, etc. are significant elements of modern Latin
text.
