out that Comic Sans specifically is a rather amateurish affair.
As to TSCu_Comic: While it isn't as worn as Comic Sans, it doesn't look
like a high quality font either – additionally, the glyph set is
basically just Ascii.
My worry with all of this is of losing sight of what LibreOffice is trying to achieve ... some form of compatibility with MSO 2007 files. There should be fonts that are compatible with the stock fonts supplied by MSO so that users/corporate users who migrate from MSO to the LibreOffice suite are not served with documents that vary wildly from their previous MSO documents. You can get the official list of MSO fonts from the Microsoft site. At the very least, these should be covered so that font compatibility during document migration is as near to perfect as possible.
If the number of fonts gets excessive, then we could perhaps offer some fonts with the download version of LibreOffice (compatible with the Home-Student edition version fonts) and direct users to the LibreOffice extensions site where a complete set of "compatible" set of MSO fonts could be found.
As for the Comic Sans font, it would be nice to find a compatible font for LibreOffice as I see it used in classroom settings.
