@jfkthame's comment inspired me an interesting question. So are we positive to accept language/script/writing-system specific generic font families? I would then have 3-5 Japanese keywords that are nice to be added, and I think we should be prepared to requests to add a few tens of such keywords from other scripts. We might need some guidelines what to accept and what not to.

For what such generic family should do for contents in other scripts, we have learned that aggressive mapping may not be what authors want in the discussion for `system-ui-*` families. I think we can take the same policy here: do not map and allow authors to define the next fallback font.
