Sure, if the group is game to split these groups up by OS, that'd be even better.  I made my suggestion because it'd be 1) a significant improvement over the status quo, even if far from ideal, and 2) it seemed the group was hesitant to break things up by OS.  But I 100% agree, making these lists per-OS would be even better.

My understanding from the call was that the current idea was:
1. Put the algo for deciding what fonts are often loaded in which locals into the spec
2. Crawl or telemetry or similar measurements for which fonts the above algo gives
3. Publish that list somewhere, a la the public suffix list
