Speaking as a user here, I'm not sure if your proposal of a drop down is
really what solves the problem here. 

I really like the fact, that the fonts are categorized. That is
something which I really miss in the font selection dialogs currently.
If a user has installed a motherload of fonts, he mostly has to scroll
and scroll and scroll to pick a font.  Using a drop down widget has the
disadvantage, that I still have to scroll like mad to pick a font, even
if they are categorized. I'm able to find the font much faster, but
picking a font is cumbersome as it is now.

In fact, the only dialog which I endore is the font dialog from Apples
Mac OS X. You still have to scroll to pick a font, if there are lots of
fonts in one category, but it minimizes the effort.

Well, just my 2 cents to your proposal :)
