Since "pattern" rules are applied before "font" rules, I applied the
default setting as a "pattern" rule. The docs don't explain how to do a
wildcard match, so I used an empty string. It seems to work. Is this the
correct way to do it? Would it be better to just omit the <test>?

The lower block is now a "font" rule, but it still has no effect. I am
testing it by setting gedit to display with the Monospace font.

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<!DOCTYPE fontconfig SYSTEM 'fonts.dtd'>

  <match target="pattern">
    <test name="family"><string></string></test>
    <edit mode="assign" name="rgba"><const>rgb</const></edit>
    <edit mode="assign" name="embeddedbitmap"><bool>true</bool></edit>
    <edit mode="assign" name="autohint"><bool>false</bool></edit>
    <edit mode="assign" name="hinting"><bool>true</bool></edit>
    <edit mode="assign" name="antialias"><bool>true</bool></edit>
    <edit mode="assign"
    <edit mode="assign" name="hintstyle"><const>hintfull</const></edit>

  <match target="font">
    <test name="family"><string>Monospace</string></test>
    <edit mode="assign" name="antialias"><bool>true</bool></edit>
