Well, that pertains to the fonts descriptions. Let's have the
fonts-hanazono main maintainer decide whether it's relevant to add
"Chinese" somewhere in the font description. However, as it might be
relevant for most fonts targeted at Japanese, I wonder if one should
anyway always assume that a "Japanese font" is likely to well support
Chinese too.

Reassigning, as I'm not a specialist of both these.
