I am sorry you feel that way. But I have to make one thing clear:
This is not an aestethic issue. This is a *technical* one.
I do appriciate all the work the designers have done and I do believe
the new typography is in essense very well thought out.
However, its *technical* implementation is severy flawed.
It has caused many non-latin projects to force them to override the
global font stack in their local CSS to reset it to sans-serif, because
parts of their site have become unreadable or illegible. That makes this
a *breaking change*, and as such, *must* be reverted.
I do not accept that there will be a "few" readers left with issues; our
primary goal is legibility. And if legibility is damaged on a world-wide
encyclopedia, how can you even *think* about defending a breaking change?
