I would say changing a user interface in an incompatible way and 
reducing functionality(*) without documenting it does. If you look at 
Merle's message you see that even the new fc-* binaries are not informed 
about the new location of the config files:

>> [LeopardAlBook:~] merle% fc-match
>> Fontconfig error: Cannot load config file "/etc/fonts/fonts.conf" 

(*) The Tiger fonts.conf file has the system font directories in its 
font directory list, the Leopard fonts.conf hasn't.
