As suggested by Jens Petersen the package review tools such as rpm should be
enhanced to check fontconfig files provided by packagers are well-formed.

This check could take two forms:
1. check that all the files in %_fontconfig_templatedir are well-formed-XML
2. check that they conform to the current fontconfig DTD (this test probably
requires for the fontconfig packager to register it in the system XML catalogs
but Behdad is working on a new release right now so that's a good time to ask)
