The current set of logical fonts are designed to keep the same aspect in 
all languages, which means all Alphabetical characters are displayed in 
the same set of fonts in all languages. This is not a good design for 
all applications.

For example, in the current font.properties.ja file, Alphabetical 
characters and Japanese Kanji characters are displayed in different 
fonts, while Japanese language prefer to display all characters in 
Japanese fonts.

We need an API that lets applications indicate their preference for 
locale-specific or Latin fonts as the primary component of logical 
fonts. This should be a simple method that's called once at application 
startup and then impacts all fonts created for the application or applet
