IMHO yes. When this was formalized (around Bitstream Vera inclusion in
fedora.us then FC) non adherence of font packages to any specific renderer
was an explicit objective. (I'm speaking of truetype/opentype packages
there, core fonts are a lost cause).

The most one can do is conflict with old fontconfig packages if the rpm
dumps a conf file in /etc/fonts, since fontconfig syntax has evolved over
