I see in the minutes the following:

> davidm adamant about hard metric for testing

Actually I'
​m​ not at all

​"adamant about a
hard metric"
​. ​
I'm hoping for just ONE metric for each, and it can be ANY one metric.
​ I wouldn't call that "hard". It's very soft. I think making authors
responsible for EVERYTHING is a big mistake. The SC cannot work like that.
The author needs to declare the font overrides they are relying on for
their statement of conformance. The tester would test that. It's fine to
test other things and make recommendations, but for conformance it has to
be testable, apples to apples between the author and the tester.

Cheers,
David MacDonald
