I'm perhaps the last person on this list to answer specifics about
what type designers do but I can tell you the basic problem with
traps on digital type--the traps need to stay similar size even when
the typeface changes size. Six point type doesn't call for traps that
are 1/12 of the size of 72 point type but the outlines of type scale,
traps and all.
