I often do it by spacing down and placing an empty block:

   <block>This is a test</block>
   <block space-before="12pt"/>
   <block>This is another test</block>

Yes, but it wouldn't give what you wanted ... put the line height on the 
block (since that is what is creating the line the leader is going on):

   <block line-height="12pt"><leader/></block>

I hope this helps.
