Here are some thoughts about the default chords in LilyPond:

1. The suffixes should not be scaled (see attachment). The weight of the
smaller character gets too light if it is simply scaled down from the
original font.
2. The suffix should be top-aligned with the preceding characted.
3. The sharps should be centered and the flats should be aligned with
the baseline. (Or something done in general, the sharps and flats look out of place)

So, maybe (typographically correct) new fonts for chords in the future..?

Also, it seems funny to me that the default font for chords is sans
serif, when the default font otherwise is serif. Why not use the default
roman font also for chords?

Please comment =)
