    It's true that you can complain to a foundry for an inappropriaet glyph
    but not to an implementor of other components dealing with text boundaries.
    The inaccuracies we are spaeaking about are not in the glyph representation
    but in text handling algorithms, these last ones being clearly part of the
    standard, unlike font problems.
