I used to do it a lot in Pagemaker.  I haven't laid a full book out in 
some time, and while I imagine provided kerning is probably, on average, 
better than it was a decade ago, my experience was that kerning for 
letters was generally accurate within som set of point sizes and it you 
were outside of that set - up or down - you needed to tweak.
