To a certain extent, aren't "the finer points of typography" to do with ergonomics in graphic design? Like the things Anthony Froshaug would have been concerned with; I remember reading stuff he wrote on the optimum spacing of capitals. Or the road sign stuff that Jock Kinneir and Margaret Calvert did, that you mentioned earlier in the month. Even what Spiekermann talks about in his sheep book about letter-spacing/optimum readability. Also, there's bound to be things to do with colour that effect how we relate to our environment that might fall under "ergonomics".

(I apologies for such a hurried and untidy comment, hope it makes sense).
