Thanks for the link. Now it's clear that the space distribution is performed between bounding boxes. When it comes to W with A we have a particular situation because of bounding boxes intersection:

To resolve the problem we can not align 2 letters neither with object distribution nor with spacing. In fact we need to distribute the space between the 2 of lower anchors (if we want to be fully precise):


However aligning to the key anchor skews the letter. :( Seems there is no magic pill here: either we need to do some arithmetic, either move the letter manually.

Sometime I move letters manually too. White arrow is good choice to move specific points. I am glad link helped. :)
