Comment (by dedidata):

 For Persian, Tahoma is suitable for normal and small sizes, And Arial Bold
 is suitable for headings
 But the combination of these 2 fonts will not perfect totally for Persian
 The typography of Tahoma and Arial fonts may be good for English or some
 other languages, but not enough for Persian
 Using those fonts, the site will look like an old site in Persian,
 That's the reason I mentioned to include IranSans font, I granted a
 license for whole wp.org
 I think this is related to the theme to choose its font, Not related to
 WordPress core
 Many advanced Persian themes and sites use IranSans font for their theme
 I don't see any popular Persian sites which use Tahoma or Arial as their
 So we have a theme on WP.org web site which it has its rules, We can
 define its rules
 So we can decide to have an old feel and looking site for Persian, Or an
 I really don't like to lose our visitors by displaying an old looking site
