Yes, you are right, but I also talked about these notes:

"Font registration via XML font metrics file is still supported and may still
be necessary for _some very special cases_ as fallback variant while we
stabilize font auto-detection." [1]

and

"The "metrics-url" attribute is generally not necessary _except if you run into
problems_ with certain fonts." [2]

Nobody knows where the problems appears. But, anyway, my opinion is only FOP
user opinion. You, as a FOP dev, certainly know more about FOP architecture.
