One advantage of the need to provide support for the fonts that are used in the Oriental TeX project (the primary funding project of LuaTeX code development) is that we need to support OpenType fonts with more than average features in ConTeXt (used by the OT project). In this talk I will reflect on the possible use, abuse and/or misuse of OpenType fonts, the complications in implementing the standard(s), and the consequence for TeX users.
