They are free to rebind it on their own.  That's not a concern.

A concern however is that M-g _is_ frequently rebound by users and
installations to goto-line, and so maybe we should spend some thought
about a recommendation where the font selection commands should go on
installations that rebind M-g, to avoid more inconsistency in actual
installations than can be avoided.
