I wonder whether this is a good idea; someone might decide on the basis
of a demo that you aren't any good at kerning and spacing. Admittedly, a
lot of your faces are designed for display, and users might be expected
to tweak the setting no matter how good the kerning and spacing were,
but someone evaluating a font for continuous text might very well set
continuous text with a demo, and perhaps find it wanting.
