Yes, I just determined the amount of overlap by the look.
But in any case there'd be still work to do for the other design sizes (11
to 26) of Emmentaler.
The proportions slightly change, and for smaller sizes, we'll need less
overlap, for bigger sizes, there may be more overlap.
It's like in (good) typography: Kernings can be quite extreme in large sizes
(posters, headings), whereas in smaller print (novels) they are much more
subtle and in very small pring (excyclopedias, patient information leaflets)
there is hardly any kerning and the overall letter-spacing is wider.

So, I'll have to calculate the overlap from the design size, as it looks

All the best,
