All LaTeX users expect this. :-)  Its a natural consequence if you
handle all font selection parameters independently.

And it's certainly what you *want* to happen if your other family is, in fact, a non-Roman alphabet. I do this all the time with Greek, where a .fam GK request or \F(GK escape changes to my Greek fonts for a word or a sentence in predominantly English text, which should be in the same style as the surrounding text. (It would, of course, be much nicer doing this with Unicode, then the family switching - which is essentially a hack - wouldn't be necessary).
