How does one go about turning off fallback? A define or a user option?

The only reason I can think of keeping it is that (for example) the 
default GNOME settings should be that the fixed-width font is 
"Monospace" and if a user goes to change that, it should be there as a 
default selection.

I take it that by sample string improvements, you mean that if the user 
chooses "Sans Serif" they get a sample string that says "Bitstream Vera 
Sans" or something along those lines?
