I'd go so far as to say both are uncritical.
However, if it is feasible to just cache the font names shortly after
startup or if it is possible to speed up their display otherwise, we
should try to do that for 3.6.

Checked on Windows and Linux and we don't seem to. So, yes, that might
rid us of at least two icons and a bit of code if we decide we don't
ever want to display bitmap-based fonts again.
