http://chris.improbable.org/experiments/browser/webfonts/universal-noto-sans/ has two test cases where the CSS unicode-range property can be used to avoid @font-face downloads when the page does not include characters in the range.

Testing is simple – load one of the testcases and see whether fonts other than the Thai or Armenian font are downloaded:
