Regarding the missing hyphen, I'd recommend modifying the font with FontForge if the license allows embedding in ePub, it probably also allows modification, but it might require a name change. It shouldn't be too hard to add a passable hyphen. Thank you for pointing that out, antropophageous anatidae Regarding corrections, I share Jellby's opinion.
As long as the changes are easy to find, I have no problem with an altered epub file. Regarding the dash, I think I'll just use another font for it.
