If we make some font the default one ... it makes sense to put it on
CTAN and include it in TeX Live as well, right?


But then ... I somehow find it a bit weird to have Arabic fallback
inside Latin Modern unless a user requests that explicitely and also
says which font he wants to use. That it: I would suggest to have some
setting that would tell exactly which glyphs to replace in the main
font, which features to use ... but then the user would say that this
font needs to be added.

That is: are we also going to add Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Ethiopic,
... etc. scripts, all inside the one default font?
