What's funny is that the few times I've noticed the difference --
usually an oddly accented character in the middle of a name -- the
Vera+Something-Else-Random rendering was egregiously, stupendously,
awful (e.g., a badly-scaled fixed-with font with serifs, in the middle
of a Vera Sans string, at twice the height...).

I'm betting on "Our users request that nothing at all be changed, ever"
