What's wrong with it? It currently has accessibility issues but they
are fixable. Yet the usability advantage of the list with font samples
and the bold and italic buttons should be replaced
with another drop down where one can choose from the available styles.
We decided against this because this list in the Font dialog is
actually deceptive. We cannot set arbitrary styles because of CSS
limitations. If you select e.g. some fancy "outline" or "swash caps"
variant it will jump back to regular. There's a long-standing bug on
that, and it's unfixable without adding a custom extension attribute
or CSS property. So until this is done, it is much better to have only
these primitive controls - they correspond 1:1 to CSS capabilities and
therefore work reliably.
