I suspect the only reason that does not happen is we have a lot more
CJK packages than Arabic packages (and no Fraktur packages that I know

It's not really a centralizing problem. If we had a clear "official"
clean way to write fontconfig cjk rules I'd happily crack down on
packagers not using them. Right now we haven't really, so I refrain.
Nevertheless CJK fonts easily account for 80% of our reported font

It would be nice if our intended priorities and fontconfig settings
for CJK fonts were documented somewhere (for every concerned locale).
Then I could pester Behdad so he tells us how to achieve them cleanly.
Right now, I'm not even sure this is clear to anyone but the concerned
packagers. And every time I open a CJK fontconfig file I see magic of
the blackest sort.
