It's quite easy to display characters without aa
(anti-aliasing), but the problem is how we specify aa or
non-aa for a specific set of characters/fonts.  We may want
aa even for Chinese characters if the font size is smaller
than some threshold.  So, we must design a flexible
interface that can be controlled by users.

Couldn't Emacs, by default at least, just let xft/freetype/whatever

Perhaps possible for xft backend.  I've just installed a
change for that.

I was under the impression that other apps just did that, and
it seems to work well (roman letters use aa, cjk doesn't use aa at
"normal" sizes, but _does_ at big sizes).

I've thought that aa is useful for small sizes.

Usually not. The smaller size the worse it looks. OSX has a system setting where you can set the smallest size when AA is used.
