Re: [css-inline] is it possible to set "min-line-height"?

I think your issue is about how UA/user preference and author intention
should be resolved when they conflict, and I don't think adding a property
can help.

Let's say CSS has min-line-height, and your UA starts using it. Someday,
authors will find it useful and start using it too, and you'll be back to
finding how to resolve the conflict.

I think you need to define your rules whether UA/user or author wins for
each property, or be smart to switch depends on context, either in your UA
or server.
