Font dependencies


I have found that after I have updated my system yesterday,
I've got Firefox and Thunderbird not rendering Cyrillic glyphs.
The problem was fixed by installation of fonts/dejavu-ttf,
and after I've grepped contents of firefox-13.0nb1 package
I have found several references to this font.
Installation of dejavu-ttf has fixed the same Thunderbird problem as well.

This prompts the question:

Should dejavu-ttf be made dependency of Firefox and Thunderbird packages?

It becomes a real nightmare to use Firefox in Russia. Note, that it
becomes rather hard to get out of that due to all those fancy GeoIP
tricks Google uses. (That's besides inability to read your own mail
in Thunderbird.)
