Yeah; as Jonathan pointed out to me when this feature was first  
introduced, interchar tokens are inserted regardless of the font; it  
would be possible to detect the font and conditionally insert the  
kerning, but that would mess up other uses for the interchar feature  
(namely, detecting when a certain script changes).

So while you could do it for an ad hoc purpose, it's really not the  
way to go :)
