Bug description:
  In https://bazaar.launchpad.net/~ubuntu-branches/ubuntu/wily/fonts-
  arphic-ukai/wily/revision/6, UMing and UKai are set as generics for
  fonts. However, this set of generics is completely intolerable --
  setting UKai as a generic is like setting Zapfino and/or Comic Sans as
  a system-wise generic, while UMing as a normal (just a bit thin) serif
  sounds a bit better. This yields terrible results on non-Chinese
  systems with non-Chinese lang-attributed websites, like Twitter, on
  Ubuntu 14.04 LTS after installing Chinese language support which
  includes the two arphic fonts mentioned in this report.

  This problem is similar to
  https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=20911, a long-standing
  system-global fontconfig non-latin fallback problem. See also bug
  #1560548 where these generic settings are considered as 'redundant'
  and proposed for deletion. I have mentioned a third-person report
  about such selection in #1560548 previously, but I have just
  reproduced this bug by myself by installing zh-cn support by mistake.
