I'd say this goal isn't as important as the others, although it would be 
nice if we could achieve it!

This doesn't necessarily mean imposing the rest of the world's font 
limits on TeX though!  Almost any way of including non-TeX fonts into TeX 
involves VFs, and you can use VFs to do things like place big operators 
below the baseline.  It would be nice if the encoding used in the dvi 
file was the same as the encoding output by the dvi driver, but VF 
technology means it doesn't necessarily have to be...
