that you're incorrect that this has nothing to do with fonts

I didn't say it has nothing to do with fonts at all, just nothing to do with *enabling/disabling* of subpixel rendering for fonts :-)
What the define does is control the type of filtering used to reduce colour fringes. See also the discussion from the other mails, and the older discussions linked by Adrien.

What would you suggest as a proper wording for the comment?

To be honest, I think it's rather self-explanatory already: it's called
AVERAGE_BASED_SUBPIXEL_FILTERING and when it's defined, it means the average-based subpixel filter is used ;-)
