I think I'm on to something. There's another way: MIRP is commonly used to modify the width of a stem, using the previously grid-fitted point/edge of the other side of the stem as the reference. The attached patch preserves the original width of the stem if the reference point was previously modified or is/was sitting on the baseline. This instantly gives fonts a very 'slight' appearance.
(left to right: vanilla v40 hinting, v40 with the above patch, autohinter)

The results aren't perfect and DejaVu's hinting breaks, but it might be a first step.
