well, many designers and publishers are often not aware of these things 
(actually, in most of the styles i make for publishers i end up with not 
using any font or color system simply because there is no logic in the 
choices made);

in luatex we can cheat by creating a virtual font with zero ht/dp glyphs 
but in tex this is not possible without changing font metrics

as suggested, you may try to change the ht/dp ratio and cross your 
fingers that no ( ) are used (or math with superscript)

no, it's like building a wall with 10cm heigh bricks and wanting 10 layers mount up to 80cm
