There are reasons why exactly these fonts are chosen and their use in
GRUB differs.
Unifont is chosen for comprehensive BMP coverage, while DejaVu Sans was
chosen as a part of starfield theme design.

 Unifont is chosen for comprehensive BMP coverage,
And also it's a monospace font used for terminal, you can't replace it
with a proportional font.
