Fascinating as this discussion is, I think it probably belongs over on 
Typophile, where it can contribute to general discussions about 
screenfonts without distracting from the question of web font format. At 
the risk of annoying Laurence, I'd say that the topic of size-specific 
screenfonts is orthogonal to that of web font format.


PS. If someone does want to start a Typophile thread on this topic, I'll 
be happy to explain why the OT 'size' feature is a lousy hack that 
breaks the OT layout model, is unlikely ever to be implemented in much 
software, and why a more robust and sensible approach is needed. :)
