The size of the complete set of Noto fonts (1.5 GB) is a major reason
for my not a fan approach to distributing via extension.

After installing an l10n package, the user _should_ have the appropriate
fonts for the language(s) that the package supports.
OO.o 1.1.3 ZA was awkward, becuase OOo didn't include fonts that were
appropriate for the languages in that package.
Were LibO to have a Miami l10n package, how would fonts for that package
be distributed? (I'm using Miami as an example. There are a thousand
other languages --- Na'vi,!kung, Picard as examples --- that I could
substitute as an example. Languages )

There are objective criteria that can be used to determine how suitable
a specific font is, for a specific usage.
