I wonder if this conversation (and the proposal) isn't letting the perfect be the enemy of the good.  If the proposal was amended like the following, would that address some of the "there isn't such a clear line between default and system installed fonts" concerns?

1. Build lists of default fonts shipping on windows, Mac and popular linux OSs.  This would be large, tedious, but doable, and would still mostly exclude the fonts that are most identifying (stuff brought in by photoshop, etc)
2. define OS-installed-fonts fonts as the intersection of the above set, and fonts on the user's machine
3. rest of proposal as above
