It can find a font of FOUNDRY and FAMILY, but face
attributes are not updated propery with that change, i.e.
(set-face-attribute 'variable-pitch nil :family "misc-fixed")
(face-attribute 'variable-pitch :family) => "misc-fixed"
(face-attribute 'variable-pitch :foundry) => unspecified

Currently, we have:
(set-face-attribute 'variable-pitch nil :family "misc-fixed")
(face-attribute 'variable-pitch :family) => "fixed"
(face-attribute 'variable-pitch :foundry) => "misc"

And, fontconfig requires `-' in a family name to be escaped
by `\':

% fc-list 'DV-TTSurekh'
% fc-list 'DV\-TTSurekh'

So, how about using the same rule for Emacs?

(set-face-attribute 'variable-pitch nil :family "sans\\-serif")
