What would the crawl or telemetry measure specifically so that existing font fingerprinting scripts don't confuse the measurement?

The Windows 10 font bundles are documented at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/typography/fonts/windows_10_font_list . (Note that the "Pan-European Supplemental Fonts" bundle is not autoinstalled as a side effect of adding an applicable language to Windows. The rest of the bundles are autoinstalled when an applicable language is added to Windows.)

The fonts bundled with macOS Catalina are documented at https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT210192 . You want the first section and the parts of the last section that are in the hidden language support folder (practically the Noto fonts in the last section). (The last section also lists iWork fonts.)

You can find the default font list for a given Linux distro by running `fc-list --verbose` after doing a clean install. [Fedora 31 beta](https://bug1582687.bmoattachments.org/attachment.cgi?id=9098235), [Ubuntu 19.10 beta English](https://bug1582687.bmoattachments.org/attachment.cgi?id=9098236), [Ubuntu 19.10 English with all languages added after install](https://bug1582687.bmoattachments.org/attachment.cgi?id=9098238).
