But don't you *want* to see all your fonts?  I.e. if you chose to 
install xorg-ugly-fonts, you don't want them mysteriously missing from 
your font listings, do you?

I think as long as the ugly fonts are in separate packages, putting them 
all in /usr/share/fonts will be ok based on the principle of least 
surprise (though you bring up a good point that this is a change in 
behavior wrt current FC).
