Yes, you can set a specific line-height every time you use that font and get consistent cross-browser results for line-spacing.

But it seems if you're overriding ascender/descender, on which the default value of line-height depends, you might also want to set the default line-height as well. It's not necessary, but it will save you specifying `line-height` everywhere you use the font. If the stylesheet defining the font is being imported by someone not familiar with the modified metrics, this is probably quite important.
