On the other hand, for "fantasy" class fonts (esp. things like swash
capitals or alternate beginning/ending letters), the font designer
would have expected the glyphs to overflow the inline boxes,
and the page would look horrible if we insist that glyphs be always
contained within the inline boxes.

Can't have it both ways, I guess.
