Update (when bug#701478 is done): ...encourage to consider use either
Open Sans or Noto. The former being (arguably) the successor of Droid
largely identical but optimized for web and print use (where Droid was
optimized for low-res screen use), while the latter is likely having
widest Unicode coverage.
