Also with LESS we would be able to substitute the font variables on a
per language basis with a little tweaking. This is pretty trivial to
do and I'd suggest a reactionary approach.

Yes, we only looked at Latin fonts. We are working on an FAQ, however,
explains how wikis that use non-Latin scripts can
specify their own font
stack using MediaWiki:Vector.css.
I dont think users should be responsible for that sort of thing. Could we
do per-language css and only do this on en/other known good languages if we
know that its going to be a bad choice for some languages?
There are only a couple of languages in which we know this stack will be a
"bad choice" (so far, Navajo and Vietnamese). In most languages that use
non-Latin scripts, the font-family declaration will have little or no
effect, but the readability will be improved by increasing the leading and
font-size. Specifically the existing small leading is often a problem for
Indic scripts and the existing small font-size is often a problem for
