So, I don't have anything against a comic-y font. I just wanted to point
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.
