Comment (by iandunn):

 Doh, my bad. I replaced Open Sans with the new 4.6 font stack and missed
 the height/weight issues. We can definitely fix those, or maybe revert to
 Open Sans if you feel like that's best.

 The reason I switched was to avoid the external dependency and extra HTTP
 request, and also to avoid the potential for leaking sensitive information
 via referrer headers (and all the other issues with Open Sans:
 [https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/26072 1],
 2]). Leaking info is admittedly unlikely in this context, but it still
 makes me leery when combined with everything else.

 It also sounds like the new stack has
 [https://make.wordpress.org/core/2016/07/07/native-fonts-in-4-6/ several
 advantages] over Open Sans, like instant loading, better language support,
 and consistency with the device's native UI.

 What are your thoughts on all that?
