it all makes me wonder if otf is that clear and clean and good ... font 
designers nowadays need to be programmers and close-readers-of-specs too

a luatex table ... not related to the issue but nicer anyway)

the message is a signal for users not to complain too loudly if some 
expected kern doesn't show up

(i didn't test side effects so we might now run into other cases)
