And probably because nobody has taken care until now.
I think it would be great if we could find a set of basic fonts which could
be checked into the repositories. But of course that's not so easy because
I think they should at least:
- be of a decent quality (comparable to the ones in the Oracle JDK)
- offer as big as possible Unicode coverage
- be license compatible with OpenJDK (i.e. the current copyright holder
must be willing to contribute them under the OCA which is effectively a
license sharing agreement)

Any ideas?

Why it "cannot" or why it "does not" ?
