Could you perhaps look at the Emacs sources and suggest how to change
the *_open functions in the *font.c back-ends, to do what you suggest
above?  Or at least tell how to get "the current size of the font"
from the back-ends we use, which are Freetype, Fontconfig, and XLib's
XLoadQueryFont?  The relevant source files are xfont.c, ftfont.c, and

Also, how to know from the glyph metrics, in their Emacs incarnation,
that an individual glyph needs an increase of the vertical space?
