If I understand the OP correctly, he wants LibO to

1. Handle different languages on different locales.

And because available fonts are different from OS (platform) to OS
(platform), so

2. LibO should be able to have a right list of fonts to use for different OSes.

Having a list, as the default configuration, of fonts in highest to
lowest priority
for different languages and locales is a good idea.

And, IMHO, to do so, I think we should so let user to edit font priority list.
# Not hardcoded in VCL.xcu

Please correct me if I am wrong.
