3) We have a section in our fonts.conf

  URW provides metric and shape compatible fonts for these 10 Adobe families.

  However, these fonts are quite ugly and do not render well on-screen,
  so we avoid matching them if the application said `anymetrics'; in that
  case, a more generic font with different metrics but better appearance
  will be used.

I don't get why screen readability here is important at all here and
why the anymetrics rule is helping us here.
Any one know why that is important?
