I think the main reason is Red Hat has historically been not too
interested in the desktop. New fonts are seen by the Red Hat people in
charge more as a source of new support requests than as a way to improve
users experience (kind of sad given all the energy poured in the past in
BlueCurve for example, which was a way more dangerous project will much
smaller benefits)

At least the reactions to the DejaVu proposal closely mirror the
discussion over Vera a few years back.
