It is. Welcome down the rabbit hole.

The problem you describe sounds relevant, but as always, the devils' 
in the details. Leaving aside what mechanism we use to solve it for 
now, what would you expect/want to happen when the web font does load,
 but it only support some of the characters used in the page, and the 
fallback font is used for these. Do you want the various font related 
settings you've prepared for the fallback to still apply to the 
characters displayed using it, or is it better to discard them as long
 as the web font has loaded?
