​I am in no way saying this is the optimal solution, but it *is* at least
another way...

Keep Noto CJK as several fonts and package Adobe’s virtually equivalent
Source Han as one super OTC.

By the way, Ken Lunde has also made available this amazingly silly super
OTC [0][1], in case you are interested!
