All those things are also affected by which font is being used in the first
place, so variation in kerning support doesn't make anything less interoperable
than it already has to be.  If a page is designed so that it becomes confusing
or buggy if the glyphs used are slightly wider or narrower than expected, it's
going to break on tons of setups no matter what.  Variation in the relative
weight of different runs of text doesn't *have* to be non-interoperable, so
it's not a valid comparison.
