Hi All.
I think it's a good idea to use Dejavu fonts
instead Bitstream Vera. Reasons are:
- it based on Bitstream fonts (1.10);
- it's distributing under SAME license;
- it supported MUCH more unicode pages than original Bitstream fonts; it 
was main goal of Dejavu Projects "to provide a wider range of 
characters", to support various languages and codepages.
In particular, I tried to activate Russian language in ReactOS 0.2.7-REL 
with Dejavu fonts. It working correctly without any proprietary fonts :).
Unicode coverage table:
At this September they want make new release, 1.14. I think, it new 
version may be integrated with ReactOS 0.3 :)
