I'm not exactly sure what will take place if the recommended font package
gets blacklisted.  I'm also not sure of the legality of this - i.e. will
the font package in question appear on our ISO and do we have legal rights
to do this with our/ubuntu's distribution policies?

I will say that the users may complain that wine does not run nicely unless
these fonts are installed after.  If you've blacklisted the fonts then can
they ever install them without throwing a conflict error?  There's a lot of
testing that will need to be worked on here.  Wine is quite a big element
of many people's computers.  Be careful what you blacklist.  Fairly soon I
think some MOTU consultation should take place on this matter.  Len can you
look into these questions?
