They use all-caps Verdana in their headlines, how am I supposed to take their views on web typography seriously?

(Yeah, sarcasm, but) You don’t have to take any of their views seriously. All they are doing is implement OpenType features. They are not in any way pushing for new features. You can already do that stuff pretty much everywhere except on the web. (Can you imagine how happy the long neglected typography on the web nerd inside me is about this? Well, took ’em long enough.)

InDesign could do all that stuff since forever (literally!). I’m not sure, but I think OS X could, too.

The only fear you can have is that they screw it up. That, however, seems pretty unlikely, considering the trampled path – scratch that – superhighway they are driving on.
