To answer to your question with correct understanding, exact positioning of baselines is not part of the goal for Level 1 of the `line-height-step`, because:
* This isn't defined nor interoperable today with CSS2, nor CSS inline level 3 as of today.
* Consistent height and baseline jitters can be solved separately.
* While there're algorithms that can improve baseline jitters for some scripts, as in your proposal, East Asians are unlikely to get desired results until `dominant-baseline` is implemented. As some claimed, this level of the property is unlikely to be much useful for Latin.

When we've got enough infrastructure defined in CSS inline level 3 or in future levels, we can add features to solve baseline jitter problem.
