imho wrong.

your impression is right for word processing, but for DTP work, you
will mostly want to use a basegrid alignment (for both aligning through
columns and front/back side on the sheet of paper).

fixed size line height is a good starting point to make you aware
of the fact that line height does matter!

but i agree with you that one should be able to set her preferred line
spacing as a default...

do you want to write a bug report for it?

good night
