Something like that should already be possible.  Underline placement is
determined by the following rules, considered in this order:

1. If x-underline-at-descent-line is non-nil, underline at the descent line,
where the descent line is the bottom of the current glyph row, inclusive of
extra line spacing.

2. If x-use-underline-position-properties is non-nil and the font has underline
position info, use that.

3. If the current font can be determined, use half of the font's descent,
"descent" here meaning the maximum amount by which a character from the font
descends below the baseline.

4. Otherwise, use the default offset (1 point).

The only one of these possibilities that should be affected a change in line
spacing is 1.  Is that not what you see?
