This isn't the first time there has been glyph shifting and probably 
won't be the last. To rephrase what Jean has said, at any point in time, 
the devs have to use what seems to be the most sensible algorithms for 
text placement in the frames. Sticking with old and problematic methods 
is not helpful in the long run.

When these things come up, and might be a serious problem for some users 
in some of their documents, one can put a non-printing text frame on 
page one which reminds them about the text placement issue. I have done 
this myself for other purposes and it's much better than trying to 
remember or keep some list somewhere about such things.
