OK, this specific question  was answered by Franz Schmid some time ago,  
have a look at this mail: 


In Text Editing Mode changing the Textsize doesn't affect the Linespacing,
this is done this way because it's undesireable that one smaller Character
affects the whole Line. BTW: in every commercial DTP App (Quark, Pagemaker
or InDesign) it's done the same way.

If you want to use different Linespacings for different Paragraphs you 
use Paragraph-Styles.
