I'm still puzzled by Werner's blanket dismissal of letterspacing.
Attached is a pdf of side-by-side columns of identical justified
text.  In the RH column, 14 of the 27 lines of text have been
adjusted with letterspacing, some loosened, some tightened.  The
grey is clearly superior to the unadjusted column.

This kind of line-by-line letterspacing has been pretty
much stock-in-trade since the earliest days of standalone
phototypesetting systems, which is why I'm puzzled.
