--- Comment #25 from Heiko Tietze <tietze.heiko at gmail.com> ---
We discussed the topic in the design meeting. The recommendation is to remove
language dependent font families from tools > options at language as well as
the modules. The default setting should be defined in
officecfg/registry/data/org/openoffice/VCL.xcu or
i18npool/source/localedata/data/* (l10n may be interested in supporting the
default definition) with the usual way to override per styles: default (or
below in the hierarchy). The same workflow should work for paragraphs with a
different language.
Dev should consider side-effects such as search for kashida, which was only
working when CTL was enabled (bug 116242).

>From the minutes:

   + e.g. in tabs with Tools > Options > Language Settings > Default on top
   + remove “For the current document only”
   + drawback: displaces language settings (locale = english) and font settings
(default = english)
   + how to deal with the character dialog? (Tomaz)
     + consequently we have to show all types at every time (Heiko)
     + could do that similar to fill styles (color, gradient, pattern...)
     + all types are needed in parallel so switching is bad (Tomaz)

   + flatten out "languages" needed/wanted (Stuart)
   + how to assign a default font to headings/text depending on locales
   + maybe add it to
     or in files below
     + see also tdf#112879
   + take defaults from this/these files (remove tools > options > language
settings > languages: default languages)
   => remove also _all_ tools > options > writer > basic fonts (*) and let the
user set-up defaults per styles: default
   + in multi-language documents/workflows the user is supposed to create
paragraph styles with specific languages that take their default from the
(non-configurable) defaults and may customize in the paragraph style dialog
   + when removing cjk/ctl dev should take care of spaghetti code similar to 
search/kashida sensitive depends in the past on tools > options > languages
on/off ( https://bugs.documentfoundation.org/show_bug.cgi?id=116242 )
