That's interesting, because in 9 years of building solutions for very
picky marketing departments, I can only remember people asking once or
twice; and when I explained that there was a performance trade-off and
kerning would make it substantially slower they agreed instantly that
speed mattered more.

Dinu, if people are saying this, is it 'body text' they care about, or
occasional use of titles?
