Roof Face height datum and Roof Axis Line should be two separate controls

Question

After having a few problems with the Roof and Roof Face objects, it seems to me that the height datum and Roof Axis Line (slope line) should be two separate controls, instead of one.

 

An example of why—as I found out in this exercise—is that the slope line can be used to control the edge of a component that is not associated with a set of walls:

But if you move the slope line and think you're simply moving the edge of the component then you're sorely mistaken, because moving the slope line will change the height of your entire roof, requiring you to then manually readjust it.

Just bumping this one. Wouldn't mind a bit of discussion as I find it hard to get my head around the way this feature behaves every time I come to use it.
