nigelmegitt has just created a new issue for 
https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts:

== [css-inline] Define the content area of inline boxes ==
As per requirements detailed at 
https://github.com/w3c/ttml2/issues/150 define the content area of an 
inline box generated by non-replaced content, particularly in the 
block progression direction, such that it can be predicted as a length
 and used in formulae for example to ensure at authoring time that the
 background painting areas of abutting spans on consecutive lines meet
 with no gaps. Although it may not be the preferred solution for 
defining the size of a background area, even the calculation of an 
appropriate padding value to achieve this presentation cannot be made 
currently since the size of inline box areas is undefined.

Tangentially related issue regarding line height:

Which spec does this issue apply to? I'm actually not sure. When I 
discussed this at TPAC2016 with @fantasai she told me that this is 
related to the Inline Layout Module ( 
https://www.w3.org/TR/css-inline-3/ ) however that does not seem to 
have any related specification text whereas the Intrinsic and 
Extrinsic Sizing Module seems more appropriate, specifically 
https://www.w3.org/TR/css-sizing-3/#max-content-block-size ; however 
although that defines new keywords for the `height` property that 
could be relevant, the `height` property itself does not apply to 
non-replaced content, so it may not be the right place to look.
