I'm not sure I buy this argument.
IME, splash screens normally look different to how an application
"normally" looks, and I don't expect to be able to customize a splash
I think it far more likely that people will visit a file to see how the
fonts look.
But I have no evidence (but I assume you don't either).

Having said that, it's not obvious to me that the fancy splash screen
really _needs_ to use variable-pitch face (if that it is what this
report is actually about).
