I did so on a quite up-to-date Debian testing/unstable/experimental mix
with a handfull of font packages installed. I stand corrected, the rule
has indeed no severe effect on the global preference for the sans-serif
flavor - which, I believe, is due to the clever placement of the rule in
the fontconfig queue and not due to the rule itself (which contains no
restrictions regarding its own scope). Sorry for the noise, but I
believe it was important to discuss this beforehand. Here are my results
of "fc-match -a sans-serif" before and after installing the rule:
