Nothing. Point size seems to mean nothing to font designers. I have thousands of commercial fonts, and the chances that even half of them are built to the correct base and ascender lines so they come out to correct point size is at best, poor.
In other words, don't expect the point size you choose in a font to actually measure that height on a printed page.
