I think that is good.  For instance, when we change
variable-pitch to family "sans", fontconfig surely finds a
proper font, and by adding ("sans" "helvetica" "helv" ...)
to face-font-family-alternatives, X can also find some font.
And for fixed-pitch, "mono" is good.

This is a good idea in general, but for the problem of
"variable-pitch" and "fixed-pitch", I think using "sans" and
"mono" are better.
