1 Mbps is not much faster for CJ fonts downloading. And such large link speed
should not be used for fonts. Note that the downloadable fonts are not
realistic by the cost too. E.g., there are few free Japanese fonts. Because the
Chinese characters which are used in Japan are very many. (E.g., Joyo Kanji is
about 2000 characters, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/J%C5%8Dy%C5%8D_kanji )
Generally, one Japanese font which is for screen is about 10 thousand yen or
more... Of course, such fonts cannot be uploaded for downloadable fonts. So,
the free Japanese downloadable fonts are not realistic in future too.

I think that the current our font preferences are best solution for CSS
rendering. The fonts of web contents are customizable by users and web
designers. The gnome font setting didn't assume such customizable contents in
applications, probably. So, maybe, we don't need to honor the settings in web
