Not really, since 'GPOS' is much more powerful.  For example, you can
disable, say, the kerning between 'f' and 'ı' for Turkish.  On the
other hand, data in the 'kern' table can't be handled specially for
certain scripts and/or languages.

However, in its most basic, 'classic' functionality the 'kern' and
'GPOS' tables do the same thing.
