In your model, if I'm understanding correctly, `initial-letter: raise 3` would not result in a raised initial given a hanging baseline. It would result in a 3-line dropped initial. And `initial-letter: drop 3` would result in a initial letter whose top is sunk 3 lines below the first line. That seems kinda weird. The behavior across writing systems should be somewhat consistent.
