Perhaps the rest of the text in `C-h C-h' should also use a proportional
font?  I.e., everything but the keys.

Yes, I think we should work towards using proportional fonts throughout
Emacs (where it makes sense) in the Emacs 29 cycle to get a more
consistent and modern look.  For instance, "emacs -Q" uses proportional
fonts in the menus and the toolbars (on most systems), but not in the
mode line or the header lines.
