Well, just about every font can handle SAMPA...
The problem is not that some font can't display a character, but that
the glyph that displays when using an inappropriate font is
*misleading*, rather than a simple filler glyph to let the user know
that the font isn't capable of displaying it. I don't expect every
font to be able to display everything, but I do expect to be able to
be sure my characters won't display with the glyphs of entirely
different characters with different meanings.
