Looks like a good idea to me. I've seen some efforts to do that (both in
Debian and outside Debian), but no one managed to really pull it off yet.

I suggest you show us working code that does the job for Xfree86 4.x, LaTeX
and gs. You could repackage one western and one eastern font already in
debian using your system and put it somewhere for download, so that we could
test it and compare to the current method :)

That about covers 99% of the important stuff, and once we see it working, it
is more than enough ground for pushing your idea through the proper red-tape
channels (debian policy) to make it standard.

Good Luck, I for one would like to see Font Manager in Debian.
