5) Restore the status quo - specifying

translates to the default font for the platform, had none of these

those platforms (though perhaps not necessarily the best).
* Windows users got fonts optimised for Windows, and which Windows
knows well how to render. They may not be free, but /we/ weren't the
ones prioritising the non-free.
* Linux users got whatever (probably free) font their distribution
provides, for which in all likelihood their fontconfig (rendering
settings) is also optimised.
* Those with cleartype etc off previously had fonts that rendered
properly or they would not have been using their system with
cleartype etc off for all this time.
* Anyone previously using free fonts, on whatever platform, did not
have their choices overridden. This also applies to those using
dyslexic-friendly and other accessibility-oriented fonts.
* And so on.
Given that no objective and verifiable issues with this were ever
provided to explain the need for a shift to specific fonts across all
platforms and languages in the first place, this means there should also
be no issues with going back.
Sounds very good to me.
