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.
