Well, I have a vertical justification system im my personal
macro package, but only block-wise, not on a line-by-line
basis as you have suggested.  The method is simple:
All text is first diverted into a page-diversion.
Before section headers, around displays, etc. a macro is
transparently embedded that indicates how much that space
can stretch.  When almost a page-full has been collected,
the output macro is invoked.  Since at this point we know
how much space is needed to align the text with the bottom,
we can proportionately add that much space at the
corresponding places when the diversion is replayed
onto the page.  Works quite well in practice.
