Oh yeah, thanks for reminding me. Well, it would depend on the exact script
you’re talking about; again, the input of native readers of the language in
question is extremely valuable for a decision to be made.
But one must also take into account:
1) Will the new fonts render well* under Windows (where LO is most used)?
2) Will the users be happy about a potentially problematic change (e.g., doc.
reflow because of different font metrics) every time they create a new
document? Will they expect the change?
3) Do the new fonts fix any bug (e.g., misdrawn glyphs or broken metrics)?
and so on...
When requesting a font change, a better rationale than “it’s a libre font” is
needed. But that’s just my opinion anyway, the ESC should be better prepared to
decide on changes like this than me.
* For example, the Liberation fonts were professionally produced and hinted by
Monotype (supplies fonts for Microsoft). Although FLOSS has pretty much catched
up and there’s a tool called ttfautohint that makes fonts look awesome under
