 From my point of view this change makes sense.
If the text of the first line of a paragraph "founds" enough space in the "above 
paragraph spacing", the text should not be clipped.

I had already looked at the patch and it looks ok.
I will have a deeper look regarding how to determine the value of "above 
paragraph spacing". As far as I remember in some cases depending on certain 
compatibility option, the "above paragraph spacing" is not applied. E.g., if the 
paragraph is the first on a page and compatibility option "Add paragraph and 
table spacing at tops of pages ..." is not checked, the "above paragraph 
spacing" is not applied.
May be I find a solution to access the already calculated and applied "above 
paragraph spacing".

May be - I am not sure.
Thus, a paragraph could have a "below paragraph spacing" and the first text line 
of the following paragraph could be to small. This would cause clipping, but may 
be the "below paragraph spacing" from the previous paragraph could be used to 
avoid the clipping.
 From my point of view avoid the clipping in this case would also make sense.
May be my above mentioned further investigation regarding the available space 
above the first text line of a paragraph would solve this, too.

Zuojun, do you know how MS Word will behave in this case?

Best regards, Oliver.
