There is a problem with fonts-noto-core, though, as several people

per script. And there are quite a few of those. So for a user, who
wants to actively and often select font in a font picker, the list
of font options gets horribly long.

Personally I see that as a shortcoming in the font pickers. They
ought to offer some "favorites" functionality, in the same manner
as it works with keyboard layouts. Unfortunately they don't, at
least as far as I know.

Why "favorities"?  No other font assumes itself to be special enough
to require such an extra functionality.

I didn't mean to attach any such characteristic to the fonts. The idea is to let each user cherry pick a set of fonts between which they can switch easily.
