That's a necessary consequence of matching the metrics of Arial resp. Times
The goal there was that you could replace the proprietary fonts with
Liberation fonts in word processor documents without breaking the layout of
the document. Incompatible metrics would defeat that purpose.
Do you know which, DejaVu or Liberation, has the fullest UTF-8
Definitely DejaVu. Coverage is one of their main goals, if not THE main
goal. Liberation is newer (so had less time to achieve high coverage) and
focuses primarily on metric compatibility.
