But a font is not pure art. It is largely a technical object (see all the text rendering bugs for poor fonts)

And the font creators that howl as soon as one proposes an open font creation process are the first to use trainees to complete their font behind the scenes (complete meaning adding the hundreds of glyphs needed for an i18n font once the glamourous ascii design part is done)
