[lucida] Large braces, question and/or feature request

Dear list members,

Thanks for all the replies! Let me summarise your answers, just to be sure
I got it right:

There are currently no large curly braces in Lucida Bright Math OpenType
and this "issue" is nothing one can "fix" in TeX but rather something that
can only be taken care of by adding new glyphs to the font.

If the above is correct, I really would like to make a feature request:
Some means to ensure a consistent look of braces of a greater variety of
sizes, that is,
- addition of glyphs for large curly braces in Lucida Bright Math OpenType
just as in MathTimesPro or Cambria Math, or
- addition of glyphs for small straight braces and a font feature to
enable/disable them.

However, you should note that I'm neither a designer nor a font creator: I
have no clue how bad inconsistent braces really are from a designer's point
of view nor do I know how complicated it is to add glyphs to Lucida Math

Thanks again
