I yield to your superior knowledge of what might or might not be
aestetically acceptable in this matter. My intention was only to give an
example of a case where a user would want to supply \latinfamily with more
information than what is currently possible.

Actually, this is only a special case of a more general situation: The user
specifies that glyphs (almost always symbols) that could not found in any
of the fonts in the font family should be taken from font #1, if they can
be found there. #1 could for example be psyr8r.
