Yes.  FontConfig can do that while creating the cache.

Exactly this is the problem...

Whether it is `sufficient' is not the question.  FontConfig shows both
ID 1 and ID 16, which is good, and I think it is best if the `size'
mechanism works for both names.

Well, yes.  Maybe fc-list and fc-match can indicate somehow that the
`size' feature is active.
