Installing Wine's fonts system-wide: which ones are worthwhile?

After being partially inspired by Ubuntu brainstorm, it occurred to me
that some of our fonts would be useful everywhere, but the current Wine
package keeps its fonts to itself.  Tahoma, for instance, could be
useful if someone tries to open a Word document in Open Office.

The solution varies across distributions, however in Ubuntu and Debian's
case it means naming the fonts specifically and creating a hints file.

So, which ones should be installed this way?
