It seems that you really want here is for first-letter to not affect line descent.

Would "line-heigh:fit" be a reasonable way to say "calculate line height as usual, but ignore descent unless there are glyphs with non-zero descent"?

(2) We could add a property just to specify this fitting behavior.  For example:

line-height-policy: normal | fit;
