I'm quite surprised to hear that fontconfig.properties file are now 
redundant... I've worked on some fontconfig issues just recently, and I 
cannot say that fontconfig.* files are in any way "unnecessary"...

A removal of fontconfig.* files will require a very thorough 
re-evaluation and re-design of many JDK classes, as well a very 
exhaustive testing.

Am I missing something here?
