The Ship-Locked Camera, Could It Lead The Ship?

I’ve been really enjoying Sunless Skies, but there’s one small thing in the interface that I keep coming back to. Would it be possible for the camera to lead the locomotive? When travelling side to side, this isn’t an issue, but when going up or down, there’s very little room to see upcoming obstacles (especially when travelling down).

Alternately, could the UI shift slightly when travelling down so the bar isn’t directly ahead of the locomotive?
