It is consistent for you. You'd need a massive test campaign to prove this is
not subjective, not limited to a specific set of fonts, a particular
hardware/screen resolution/dpi, etc. The internet is littered with opinions on
font rendering that all disagree with each other.

You may comment on it, but do not expect Fedora to care over-much about a
component that was removed in Fedora 9 (4 release cycles ago, for legal
reasons so it has 0 chance to get back in). For RHEL please go through RHEL
