I'm not so sure about this, since I'm not convinced that a 14pt
\textstyle\int is the same as a 10pt \displaystyle\int.  The shapes of
the two glyphs are actually quite distinct, more than I'd expect from
optically correcting for the change of design size.  I'll have to
compare the 7pt \displaystyle\int with the 10pt \textstyle\int...
