Yes. But now, there are lots of fonts not built correctly which come directly or indirectly from commercial font companies, especially ones for Asia language. Although not useful or bad for correct fonts, this patch may quickly bypass this legacy problem for many important fonts. Sometimes, these widely used but ugly built fonts are the only choice.
