--- Comment #13 from Werner Lemberg <wl at gnu.org> ---
Greg Hitchcock replied as follows:

The simple answer is that the gasp table was designed for and only applies when
font smoothing is enabled. 

The intention of the gasp table was to fine-tune the grayscale work. The
Calibri font was initially only designed and hinted for ClearType, the gasp
table settings and the sbit data was intended to *help* Calibri work better
with either bi-level text or font smoothing.
