I suppose they would look great but I have never heard *any* 
discussions on "hand tuned anti-aliased bitmaps". 

To my knowledge no one has ever created them. They just do not

What little I have heard on the subject of "much better fonts" 
is that in the future we will have higher resolution displays 
(~200DPI) and then anti-aliasing will not be an issue.
