Yes. That is sensible and I've thought of that too. But from the point 
of view of a distribution (I and my friend are making a 
Vietnamese-friendly distribution), you can't really control what font a 
user may install onto their system. And what if they really want Courier 
New for a poster designed in LibreOffice Writer?

My point is that I want ALL Linux distributions to benefit from a saner 
alternative to Courier New :)
