I'm kind of surprised that I haven't been able to find an FAQ on the
Unicode site that talks about fonts with incorrect glyphs, or incorrect
kerning, and explains that these problems aren't solved by encoding new
characters with identical glyphs and slightly different properties.
Either the FAQ doesn't exist, or it should be more prominent.
