I agree the font information should be updated by the translator. If that's not properly done it's a bug and should be filed accordingly.

Regarding the FR I'll think about it, but also like to discuss it a bit more on IRC.

Translations below a certain mark (like lower than 80% for the main wesnoth po file as first suggestion?) shouldn't appear in the language selection menu. They still should be possible to switch to when editing the preferences file directly so that translators and advanced users still can use those unfinished translations, but endusers rather get confused by languages that in the end turn up only as english because next to nothing is translated yet.

Also, adding the required font information should be one of the first tasks that a translator should do, so that people enabling that language through the preferences file are actually able to see the translations when the font is installed.

If this is not wanted for for everyone, one solution would be to make it a compile switch. I can understand that developers and translators wouldn't want to have to edit the preferences file, but for packages shipped to end users through distributions it is the much safer approach, IMHO.

Thanks in advance for considering,
