In my experience, those who are primarily interested in design will pay
attention to width of margins, the infamous "rivers" that are supposed
to happen upon use of two spaces after a period (I've only heard of
them, never having seen one), and whether a serif instantly makes
content comprehensible (or not).

Sometimes, and I've personally experienced this, at the expense of
getting a document out the door on time.
