Well, "free fonts" can really do whatever they want...
Proper metadata usage will surely increase.

OTOH many libre/open fonts projects already follow metadata best
practises and they are active distro team like Debian/Ubuntu/Fedora/etc
who analyse metadata of published releases and kindly report bugs to
upstream authors so they can be fixed.

And of course there's the great work of Ed on fontaine and the OFLB's
plans for making good use of metadata :-)
