I suggested a way of doing that in my previous message.

Sure, why not?

It's not straightforward, it's pretty advanced stuff.  Most users
don't mess with fontsets, and if they want to customize fonts, they
know their favorite fonts in advance.

The problem is that "hook that runs once the display system is ready"
is not well defined.  "The display system" includes several
components, and the order and timing of their setup do not necessarily
fit your specific needs.

Sorry, I don't know enough about spacemacs to tell anything else.
