First of all, the behaviour on fontconfig might be changed in the future. keep
your eye on Bug#546490 as Pravin said at the above comment.

Speaking more technical thing, right now fontconfig doesn't apply the lang to
the pattern-matching stage. basically it has been done in FcConfigSubstitute().
most applications using fontconfig is written like:

  FcConfigSubstitute(0, pat, FcMatchPattern);

So the lang from current locale is applied after the pattern-matching is
finished. as per our current rules, we are expecting to see the lang thing at
the pattern-matching. thus, the lang available at the font-matching stage
doesn't affect as expected at all.

upstream is aware of this issue but unfortunately no idea to fix that. see the
thread in upstream list for more details what the problem is:
