It would be very nice, but that seems to be almost impossible in 
European-only mixing. One who has to mix Latin, Cyrillic (with *all* 
diacritics and language-dependent features) and full polytonic Greek -- 
will eventually realise that just a couple of fonts (including the most 
expensive ones!) can do all three things at the same time, *completely* 
and flawlessly.
