You are probably misunderstanding.  We are talking about updating the
currently used Adobe metrics with better ones -- from Adobe!  What we
now have is simply inadequate; especially for the Courier family the
metrics are plain wrong w.r.t. the glyph repertoire.  Ken Lunde from
Adobe is very helpful in providing the AFMs for further inspection;
the AFM set of the 35 standard PS fonts we are going to select
eventually will be available for free, having the same license as the
current one.
