Article on new typeface by Gerard Unger adopted by Germany as their official

That sounds a little scary. The last time I remember reading of a German
government being involved with official type style designations was the Hitler
decision to mandate a switch from fraktur to roman so that his propaganda
releases could more easily be read by people in other countries.

Or has the German government been "officializing" type styles all along, and
I just haven't been aware of it?
