Is this documentated somewhere? Is there a reference to, e.g., the Metafont
book or vol. E?
I think it would be a useful extension to the TFM format to have these
font informations "officially" built in.
BTW what happens if you use such fonts in math?

As I've read somewhere one shouldn't change \topskip because it influences
the output routine somehow. And -- if I'm remembering correctly -- I changed
the \topskip value to Didot points (because the body size, etc. was in
Didot) and experienced some unexpected behavior.
