Could it be that you are using a suboptimal font?  In my experience,
finding a really good one makes a big difference.

The ones that come to mind are headers in `C-h C-h' (where it looks
great IMO, but that might be author's bias ;-) and headers in info.

FWIW, I think we could and should use proportional fonts in more places.
For example, the modus themes uses it in the `header-line-format' in
info and it just looks better with no fuzz (though it would work even
better if we added an :align-to text property).

As you Lars pointed out in your thread about proportional fonts in the
mode line, doing that will also help Emacs look more contemporary.
There are of course many cases where it just won't work, but in other
cases it absolutely will.
