I don't mind having a test, but FWIW I don't like the result either.

It's possible that the crux of the matter is that the monospaced font has been hand-picked and tweaked over the years, whereas the proportional one is something automatically selected by the system.

Comparison screenshot attached.

Speaking in more detail, I probably like how the buffer name is rendered and emphasized more, but the modes section (in parens) - not so much.
