Currently plr and csr metrics are still used, but an alternative is to

only used for computer modern.
Do you mean only drop metrics from distro or also remove the typescripts
related to this encoding?
I think the first is OK. But it would be nice to be able to use csr font
in ConTeXt if user get font from e.g. CTAN. Latin Modern was improved
from winter when I had some comments to accent's position/shape and I
use them but still there are some national typography differencies that
preserves csr alive. Hopefully these diffs do not influence metrics.
Perhaps, in the future, there might be several LM fonts differs only in
glyph shape but with the same metrics/interface. But it is a question
for another forum.
