Are you trying to make fontconfig select an appropriate font without any
language hints at all, based solely on the codepoints within the text?

If so, then what I do myself is to configure a *set* of languages
instead of a single one in my fontconfig setup. This effectively creates
a multi-lingual "locale" for the purposes of font selection, guiding
fontconfig to prefer fonts for my favored languages.
