The only cases where the "inconsistency" of the behavior is notable and
where line-based counting would fare better is when you have a page full of
empty lines mixed with other part full of long dense lines.  This is
extremely rare.

Instead, the "inconsistent" behavior is more commonly due to images
(scrolling images is currently poorly supported under Emacs) or to
invisible text.

But feel free to try and write a patch to count based on lines and let other
people try it.
