This does call attention to what seems like a deficiency in our font handling: we shouldn't expect a single font to provide the best rendering for all languages. We need a way to mix and match character ranges from multiple fonts, for its default renderings. Maybe OpenType already has this, and we just need code that actually supports OpenType properly.
A side note: my satisfaction with Linux Libertine is as displayed using subpixel rendering on an LCD screen. Be sure to turn on this option, and anti-aliasing using it.
