This is very tedious, and moreover, ephemeral: the threshold of a
dozen or so non-trivial lines is crossed only once and usually very
quickly; once it is crossed, it can never be crossed back (well,
except in the rare case that a person changes employers and is again
without an assignment).  So this kind of bookkeeping requires a lot of
clerical  work for little or no gain.
