Saying that the people who picked the font stack should be able to defend
their selection of font stack and their ability to design for all customers
with it isn't avoiding the question; it's sending the question to the ONLY
people who can sensibly answer it.
Keep in mind that a) the design team don't spend a lot of time on this
mailing list other than Brandon, and b) it's the weekend, most of them
probably aren't even aware you've asked a question yet.
Please have a little patience, and assume good faith.

David, you should ask the designers why they
chose the stack in
rather than assuming they ignored free/open
platforms. If you look,
notice that they took the time on MobileFrontEnd
and in VectorBeta to
examine what fonts were most widely available and look good on free
platforms, and specify them.
That's ... precisely evading the question.
