You might want:
Package: ttf-jomolhari
Provides: ttf-lang-dzongkha, ttf-lang-tibetan, ttf-charset-latin, 

The Jomolhari font can be used equally well for both Dzongkha and 
Tibetan languages. It covers all the characters in the Tibetan block of 
Unicode, basic Latin and some extended Latin characters used for 
transliterating Dzongkha & Tibetan.

BTW The Jomolhari font supports both the normal Unicode encoding of 
Tibetan script and part A of the Chinese national standard for encoding 
Tibetan script which also uses PUA characters U+F300 to U+F8FF to encode 
pre-composed Tibetan ligatures.

Package: ttf-jomolhari
Provides: ttf-lang-dz, ttf-lang-bo, ttf-script-tibt, ttf-script-latn

Might be another possibility if you want to use iso language and script
