That is a good example of what you can run into. Also, it is possible to tap down minor high spots when you touch bare metal. Especially while you are mudding the panel and getting it ready to skim coat. It can take a lot of body filler to build up a panel that has only a small high spot. As you said, the straight edge will make the high spot jump out at you.
