    How about including duplicates of the affected glyphs (with one unencoded and one PUA-encoded slot per glyph)? Would that make everyone happy? Of course the file size would soar. Or maybe two separate font files could be created with clear explanation for the customers. Certainly, this last solution doesn't seem too crisp.

    I'm not sure having the bottom curve of the /a tangent to the vertical is what you want. You might want to move the control point to the left to let more light in. Conversely, you can try working with separate shapes for each element of the letter. This way you will have greater control over the pen logic of your design.
    The idea:

    @Bhikkhu Pesala
    His fault is not in the design or his will to share it, but I think rather in his attitude to the font folk. Quoting the video description,
    Yes, fonts take time to make. No they don't take a month, not really. Although, people who make them want you to think they do.
    I don't think I need to expand on what that implies.

    Btw fontbullshit is a Twitter user who posted a link to the video, not any entity identified with the video poster who identifies as "Bewilder Entertainment".

    That /Z feels strange to me, like the bottom was too short. But If it's part of the style, ignore me :) I am rarely comfortable with any S's and Z's in terms of balance.

    The foot of the /t feels out of character. I understand it replicates the terminal of /f, but it feels out of place when compared to flared terminals of /e and /c.

    The /a feels awkward, I'd either make the stem conform to the vertical or lean even more just to make it more "decided". I'd also add weight to the terminal, but that's just one person's taste.

    The same goes for /i! The way it looks now it could very well be an uppercase /Idot (the Turkish letter capital i with dot above), only scaled down.
    The leg width in /R is uneven. The shape of the right spline could follow that of the left spline more closely.
