Interesting solution, but there are probably an easy/better
way of doing something similar to it.

There is an extension called:


Which allows using a per-document file. While it can also be
used to have a "nitpick" version where extra warnings are enabled,
the main usage were to have separated PDF documents.

We ended finding a better solution, so most got removed
on this patch: 9fc3a18a942f ("docs: remove extra files").

Anyway, perhaps we could simply add a Documentation/translations/
that would add the CJK font only there.

Even better, we could even improve it in a way that each translation
would generate a separated book, and then use CJK only for the
non-Latin translations.
