OK. One final caveat: Because "Monospace" is such a common generic font 
name, it might very often be placed in a pattern's family list by 
substitution rules even if it wasn't specifically requested by the 
application, triggering your non-AA rule. If you want all monospace 
fonts to not have AA, that's fine. If you want some of them to retain 
it, this might be a problem. You can write exclusion rules for those 
which is a lot of work, or you can switch back to target="font", but in 
this case using a real family from the cache, i. e. from the list that 
"fc-list '' family" gives you.
