problem with font policy

As of current, when a new font package is installed, the list of new fonts
that it provides is not propagated to the place in the system where such
information is usually kept.

In practicaly terms, this means that even though I have xfnt100 installed,
netscape does'nt see the helvetica fonts that it really wants.  Im sure
there are others with related problems out there.

Could it be made policy that installing a font package will make these
fonts be registered so that they are accessible through the font server by
default?  Are there any problems with such a scheme?
