How can I create a font that is metric-compatible with a commercial font? I don't need actual glyphs, just rectangles that will preserve the document layout.

What properties are important? Advance width, left side bearing, line spacing, kerning, something else?

Caladea and Carlito are metric-compatible with Cambria and Calibri. How they were created with the same metrics without violating the font license?
