I'd like to know what your evidence is for this conjecture.
As I take a frame, highlight part of a line, then adjust its font size, 
width of glyphs, kerning, it doesn't take much adjustment before the 
line is giving away to or stealing from the following line.

My guess is that you may be referring to built-in automated adjustments, 
such as has been implemented with word tracking in Scribus 1.3.5+. 
Certainly this feature has room for improvement, but even now, it's 
working on a paragraph level.
