Well imho it is a difference if a font set this values and xetex
simply reads them in or if the font doesn't set this values and
xetex guesses (faulty) defaults. 

Actually I found an old discussion which seems to imply that xetex
calculates the fontdimens starting from the width a space -- and
doesn't care about monospace or not:
