Well, I don't know what is more natural in practice, but since the height
should be a multiple of \baselineskip while there are no restrictions on
the width (except for an upper bound) I chose this direction.

Sorry, I can't remember what you've written about this. What is the
difference between text height and main galley height? In my templates
text height is the height of the text block without page head and foot but
including footnotes and floats.
