This doesn't sound the correct way to me. The described algorithm in
MATH specification is to set subscripts immediately after the base
(without italic correction) and shift superscripts horizontally by the
amount of italic correction, then apply math kerning if present, this
way fonts with no math kerning will still give acceptable output and
need for math kerning will be minimized.
