Well it appears on http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Packaging/ReviewGuidelines:
"MUST: Packages must not own files or directories already owned by other
packages. The rule of thumb here is that the first package to be installed
should own the files or directories that other packages may rely upon. This
means, for example, that no package in Fedora should ever share ownership with
any of the files or directories owned by the filesystem or man package. If you
feel that you have a good reason to own a file or directory that another package
owns, then please present that at package review time."

(cjkunifonts is now actually in a separate package for F8 with each
font in its own subpackage and subdir.)
But anyway fonts-chinese owned both zh_CN/ and zh_CN/TrueType/
and did not share them with any other package in fedora afaik.  Perhaps the
requirement can be waived for your packages, but I am just pointing out 
that it does go somewhat against the strict packaging guidelines.

Ok, then probably it can be called something like wqy-univec-fonts...
