You proposed to remove Andale Sans UI already at the beginning of
February, and back then it was explained why this is not a good
idea/why this is not necessary.
And back then it was also explained that of course bugfixes and
extensions of the list for locales that aren't covered properly yet
are of course welcome. You just must not make changes carelessly, as
chaning the list might have impact on the display of existing

(I did consider your post now as bad style. It is like you would ask
your father whether you can take a cookie now. Your father says "no",
thus you ask your mother the same question, hoping that she will
answer differently.)
