Yes, that is true, AFAIU.  Commenting out this line:

  (set-frame-font ascii)

makes more characters use MS Gothic.  However, CJK Ideographs are
still not displayed with MS Gothic, but with SimHei (I don't have that
font on my system, so I used SimSun instead).  But I don't see a
problem here, because MS Gothic covers only a very small fraction of
CJK Ideographs.  So Emacs does TRT here, although I couldn't figure
out why it rejects MS Gothic for these characters.
