Default Calibri, Cambria, . . .

Microsoft's new fonts appear to have been named by a poet:

‘Calibri, Cambria, Candara;
Consolas, Constantia, Corbel . . .’

But the pair that is intended as the default for Office is Calibri & Cambria: Calibri to replace Arial, Cambria to replace Times (New) Roman. However, it seems to me that a more elegant pair is Candara and Constantia. What do you think? It would be interesting to have the opinions of designers. (I’m frankly taken by Constantia’s nicer figures and Candara’s curves.)
