We still have the bundled fonts therefore this one is a valid enhancement. 

Set to NEW
Comment 2 Volga 2022-05-21 04:28:09 UTC
It's also responsible to replace a renamed font.
Comment 3 ⁨خالد حسني⁩ 2022-12-04 21:11:48 UTC
We don’t want to bundle more fonts, and dropping Scheherazade will break documents using it since Scheherazade New is not a drop in replacement, so we would need to ship the two.
