I suppose it would be useful to have access to `ascent` and `descent` 
metrics from the font (and cap height, too, if possible) as 
font-relative units. Combined with `font-size` and `calc()` function, 
this would enable better control over line box formation and aligning 
things with text (including, but not limited to, calculating the 
baseline position).
