Yes, the status is keeping track of things. 
Which reminds me there are some missing entries for Kevin and Rhett and
some others who are working on certain areas.

Plenty of tricky things in that area.

The line height calculation and alignment is only very basic at the moment.
The idea is that the LineLM gets certain information to find the offset to
baseline and total line height and when the InlineLM add areas they use this
information to set the position of the inline areas.
