What we found out is that Google's "super" OTC, unlike the other
packaging formats which provide the very same Noto Sans CJK glyphs,
doesn't work as expected with Google's web browser (or Chromium). So
yeah, alternatively it may be Chrome/Chromium which are buggy.

Bug description:
  just realize that fonts-noto-cjk is available in the repository, finally its packaged.
  i don't really know about korean community.
  But for Chinese and Japanese community, i think that the answer is clear.
  noto-cjk is definitely better what we had before, like fonts- wqy and fonts-droid.
  Android community had received these complains for years, finally they got them fixed on lollipop.
  Fedora also set it as default chinese font start from F21.
  and of course, i still hope that ubuntu could drop those 69-language-selector fontconfig files, just like what F13 did.
