There is nothing more permanent than "temporary". 
IMHO, that would be the best decision in current circumstances. Liberation v1 has high quality hinting. Autohint fails miserably on hairline glyph rendering. Perhaps it would not matter any more when ultra hi-res displays become a majority and no glyph would need to be rendered 1 pixel thick. But not today.
