Oh, that offending comment:)
I put in that comment after finding that about half of the fonts installed
on my system, including the standard Microsoft fonts, the weights 500 and
600 are used, which are not named at all in the Pango list of weights.
I've named them 'Medium' and 'Demibold'.  Unfortunately there doesn't seem
to be any consensus on these names.

Your name suggestions are well choosen. At least they match what
micro$oft calls them.
IMHO the best thing to do is suggest them as additions to Pango
on bugzilla with your good arguments but less 'offending' ;-)
Having a link to the bugzilla bug in the source than wouldn't
hurt either. [I fear they won't be added to the official Pango
API due to ABI compatibility issues though.
If you cc: me on the created bug I'll try to submit a patch for
