Is there any substantial reason against dropping the right-side serifs in the capital Thorn in bolder weights, rather than making the bowl really flat? How do Icelanders/Faroese feel about this? (Sorry if this has come up before, couldn't find anything.)
Here's what I mean:
This will obviously only be a problem where serifs are thick, contrast low to non existent (or reversed I guess), and target sizes below «huge».
In the way of examples, I've found that Dispatch and ITC Officina Serif use the serif-dropping approach, whereas for instance Rockwell opts for thinning the serifs more than normal. I personally think that's rather ugly (and wouldn't work for all faces), but how attached are Thorn-users to their complete serifage?
Also: I assume all capitals (uppercase, smallcaps, &c.) in a given font/style should be treated the same? (The third weight above would work with the serifs in the cap, but not the smallcap, so I've removed them in the cap too.)
