I have no objections to high quality commercial fonts and if i had the
available money I'd have one custom made to meet the needs of some
publications I want to type set.
It is difficult to obtain sufficient information about commercial fonts and
the open type features they support, and the glyph variants and language
systems they support without actually testing them first hand.
For instance when i work on Yolngu languages I have different glyph
requirements than with Southern Sudanese languages. With the current state
of web technologies, this requires different fonts.
