Can you please separate that from the first topic (separate thread)?

On Windows, doesn't S(-down)-mouse-1 still call up the Windows Font dialog box?
How is that related to this "fontconfig" change? Note: I know nothing about

I don't really follow it, frankly, perhaps because I'm not very familiar with
the face-remapping code.

Are you suggesting to replace the dialog to choose a font for the current frame
by a dialog to choose a font for the current buffer? Is that essentially what
you are suggesting?

Can you please describe the changes you propose more concretely? What bindings
for what menus, what changes to the existing menus, reasons, etc.
