It just works for your desired packages. but not for someone's. that's not a
neutral solution. we can suggest the default font in comps. but someone may not
likes that. the centralized management for the rule would prevents to use the
preferred font packages for users. I'm afraid you can't maintain/update it
without painful for you and everyone nor without any notice from the font
package maintainers.

The point I'm saying is:

* Do not make any changes that affects to the other font packages.
  -> this can be solved to apply the rule for the specific language.

* Do not make any changes that depends on the other font packages. otherwise it
must has certain dependencies in the package.

* Maintaining all of the font packages available on Fedora at the centralized
fontconfig rule isn't realistic. as fontconfig is capable to read the rule from
each fonts, maintaining it in each font packages with the certain policy would
works enough.

  Right now some font packages doesn't follow even current policy. we have to
mass-file a bug for them in F-12.
