I don't understand what you mean here. X applications can certainly find
out, which ISO 10646-1 fonts are installed on a system. For instance on
any of my X terminals I get
$ xlsfonts -fn '*-iso10646-1'
If I specify to an application that I want to have one of the above
specific *-iso10646-1 fonts, then I think it is fair for the application
to assume that I take over responsibility that the specified font is
complete enough for my purposes.
