Some feedback (but I'm *not* a CJK user so my opinion does not count much) :

1. our current practice is to forbid CJK fontconfig rules bellow 65. The
current package violates this by putting stuff at 61

2. IMHO the fontconfig rules in a package should never declare rules for fonts
not included in this package. So I'd dump all the rules not dealing with
"WenQuanYi Bitmap Song". If someone wants "AR PL ShanHeiSun Uni" rules he can
ask to have them added to the Fedora package that ships "AR PL ShanHeiSun Uni"
(if any)

3. IMHO it's also bad practice to declare a font in several generic families
choose serif, sans-serif or monospace but not all of them

4. what's the point of
  <test name="lang" compare="contains">
  <test name="family">
  <test name="pixelsize" compare="more">

So to sum up, you've simplified a bit but it needs to be simplified a lot more,
this file tries to be too clever by half and only succeeds in confusing apps
and users
