The grid and the baseline are useful reference. Curves corrrections are
very small, because small deviations from the baseline have great impact
on the image change. So, when I made a simple S curve to increase
contrast, I'm playing... within some pixels!
A denser grid and a baseline is useful. I'm using Photoshop as well
(check th figures of my article on curves
http://www.andreaolivotto.com/photo_retouch_05.html), and when you are
used to its curve window... I think it's a simple improvement. If you
think it could be distracting (for an inexperienced used), make it
configurable via two checkboxes.

Ops! I will try as soon as possible!
