Well, as you said, with a priority that high, advertising a capability 
is not what the property will stand for. It's more like 'lang': 
Overriding poor family choice of users.

But I'm really fine with either implementation. (Until the day I have to 
change my config /again/ to get my PCF Helvetica back in some app...)
