I forgot this: what is the point in keeping something aesthetically
pleasing, but restricted to 'Western' Latin languages only ?   

Depending upon how one counts, between half and two thirds of the 
languages in current use, that have been reduced to a writing system, 
use the Latin Writing System. Rephrasing, roughly 1500 languages
spoken today, use the Latin writing system.

Just a quick note: even if you are generally right, the font I have been criticizing here, i.e. 
Vegur – at least the version I found without digging too much, includes the letter-based glyphs 
from Latin-1 Supplement plane and 17 glyphs from Latin Extended-A plane (out of 128); and that's 

*This* appears to be the TDF branding for the "1500 languages spoken today" that use the Latin 
writing system.
