I am interested very much indeed, but I am buried in work until at least
the end of february, so at the best I can hope to travel to berlin for a
weekend or so, but there is hardly a chance for a lot of development
from my side...

I'll be glad to give constructive criticism though  :)

On the specific topic: I think we need to look at the needs for
relatively big fonts and short texts (think "headlines").

This means we need good support for microtypography (sub-pixel kerning
anyone?) and advanced open type features. There are impressively rich
fonts out there and I want to use their features...
