Am I correct that some of the LO documents used Vegur fonts?

I thought that only Liberation fonts were used in the documentation.

maybe LO could suggest different fonts in the online documentation 

That idea has been tossed out before, but not come to fruition,
partially due to the vast array of use cases, and partially because
"acceptable" isn't usually an acceptable option.

Set the boundaries of the discussion to specific use cases, allow
"acceptable" as an option, and when writing up the results, specify the
use case for the font.

By way of example:
* SBL BibLit: Biblical Languages: Usage mandated in _Southern Seminary
Manual of Style_;
* Times Roman: Manuscripts: Usage mandated in _APA Manual of Style_;
* Unifont: Recommended as a backup Pan-Unicode font;

If we could have a good list of free fonts and/or free replacement fonts that the LO users think 
would be a good

The major issues (^1) I've come across with FLOSS fonts are:
* Either Sans only, or Serif only;
* One weight only;
* One style only --- typically "Normal";

In contrast, for the typeface Helvetia, I have 296 different fonts, from
two foundries, consisting of at least a dozen different styles, in a
dozen different weights.

^1:  Liberation typeface is an exception, coming in Mono, Sans, and
Serif, with weights being Bold, Italic, Regular, or BoldItalic, and
styles being Regular, or Narrow, for a total of 17 fonts.
