There are no technical problems AFAIK, but the design itself makes it not a very
useful typeface. It sure is beautiful, but it has a very small x-height, it doesn't 
blend well with other fonts and looks best at large font sizes. Not an ideal situation
for academic typesetting...

I couldn't agree more. Even the bounding box data in some fonts is faulty.
This is all really annoying. The overall design of the GFS fonts is excellent,
but this was undermined by someone's sloppiness.
