Hi,

Currently plr and csr metrics are still used, but an alternative is to 
make those encodings regimes and use qx font encoding instead; that way

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.

currently type-dis does some mapping and it's scanned by default; if we 
switch to font encoding qx, then we can omit that scan; of course users 
can always include type-dis again

[NTG-context] latin modern / czech polish vietnamese

Concerning vietnamese ... may we assume that latin modern is used there 
(i.e. drop vnr)?
