> Quadratic curve have some disadvantage over cubic as they are less versatile on what curves they can represent and often need more segments. But the trick with the implicit oncurve point between consecutive offcurves allow certain things. E.g. there are no kinks. So limiting the designer to only two offcurve points it a really bad idea. 

You may well be correct but I don’t think that affects the proposed experiment (using fonts with public sources that already exist).
