I see in this table that there are still a bunch of languages using
non-Noto fonts where there appears to be a Noto equivalent available,
shows me Devanagari, Bengali, and
Tamil on the first page whereas your table indicates that Lohit fonts will
continue to be used there. What is the reason for that? Are the Noto fonts
for those scripts incomplete? I think using Noto wherever possible would
lead to a more consistent experience.
Another case is the math symbols: Should the default sans-serif math font be
changed to Noto Sans Math? STIX is a serif font, so it probably makes sense
to keep as the serif math font (also considering that there is, at least at
this time, no Noto Serif Math). For cases where the distinction matters,
see, e.g., the summation sign (clearly visible serifs), the integral sign
(dots at the ends that are a form of serifs), or the partial derivative sign
(constant stroke thickness in Noto Sans Math vs. variable in STIX).
