FWIW I strongly disagree here: 99.9% of the users are fine without the
extra fonts, so it should not be made mandatory. I've commented on the
bug report, and I'd appreciate to discuss things upstream first before
running to all downstreams and recommending them something else.

Same here. Actually even more, apt installs recommended dependencies by
default IIRC, but the user is free to not install the extra fonts.
