Maybe because FcPattern can contain a LangSet?  FWIW, CTFontDescriptor
on Mac OS X 10.5 can also contain multiple languages as a value for
the key kCTFontLanguagesAttribute.

http://developer.apple.com/documentation/Carbon/Reference/CTFontDescriptorRef/Reference/reference.html#//apple_ref/doc/c_ref/kCTFontLanguagesAttribute

I guess they are primarily for obtaining information from a font
(i.e., one font may cover multiple languages) rather than for query
patterns.

I don't have any particular use cases for now, so I don't care.
