Also, basic hinting is not terribly difficult for the artist with modern font design tools. Similar tools could be provided for SVG hinting. Also, auto-hinting works pretty well. I have often wondered why there has been no effort to do the same thing with SVG renderers. At the very least, they could be rendered at 2X and then downsampled with a lanczos filter. The effect is not the same, but it's far from orthogonal.

But is hinting even possible in a format that supports multiple colors? It does not seem obvious to me that it is.
