AFAIK, there exist at least 30% of the Chinese users who prefer bitmaps over vector (even we dream all free CJK vector fonts having good hinting in the future, I still don't think this fraction can be lower than 15% in the next 3 years. They made this choice because their monitors, their sensitivity to blurry, or just because they are used to windows (9x to xp, even vista). Getting opentype bitmap/sfnt wrapper to work for bitmaps is definitely the way to go: it not only saves more than half of the space, but also makes rendering a lot faster. The only concern is the support to GTK1 applications which reply on the legacy X font settings.
-I had tried SFNT TTF/OTF, neither of them works with the current fontconfig (cache file could not be generated).Please open bugs upstream so Behdad can fix support for SFNT bitmap fonts
