And the other mapping tools (i.e. the use of a CCL encoder for the font
encoding) are not a solution because they do not lift the basic assumption
that each charset is covered by at most one font?

Hmm... so the complaints we hear are from people who want to use another
default font?  Would there be a way to tweak things such that changing the
font of the default face (or of the frame, ...) automatically/transparently
builds a sensible new fontset?
