I don't build Emacs, so can't see or tell just what you
changed.  But FWIW I've used a variable-pitch face for
`mode-line' for some time now, with no problems.

I just use this face setting for it:

((t (:inherit variable-pitch :background "PaleGoldenrod"
     :foreground "black"
     :box (:line-width -1 :style released-button))))

What have you changed, other than the font and, I guess,
some alignments?

Why change the default?  Isn't it easy enough for users
to customize to get the changes you're proposing?
