IIRC, it had to do with the fact that if the face says `courier'
and the fontset info specifies `symbols', the fontset info
should take precedence (it's when the font-registry info is not
enough to map charsets to fonts and needs to be supplemented
with font-family info).
But on the other hand, if your Emacs.font says "-misc-fixed-blabla",
the `misc-fixed' info coming from your fontset should not supercede
the `helvetica' info provided by `variable-pitch' face (for example).
