Yes, spitzak has elaborated clearly on what I had in mind. It might not actually help sasha, for the case of cyrillic characters, because Libertine actually has those characters, and sasha dislikes them. It's easy to imagine complicated ways to satisfy him, but complicated ways are unsatisfactory. It would be better all around for fonts to include only attractively rendered glyphs, and for fonts to have consistent, attractive glyphs for as many code points as possible. Perhaps this means Philipp should pull the cyrillic glyphs from his releases until they can be brought to match the (superb!) quality of his roman-based glyphs. (I am not myself equipped to evaluate the quality of his cyrillic glyphs.) Then sasha would see, under spitzak's scheme, whatever he chose as the default for those code points.
