[arch-general] pacman --assume-installed in a config file?

I often find myself using the `assume-installed`[1] option of pacman
when doing upgrades, since I want to avoid some (for me) nonsensical
dependencies to be installed.

Is it possible to configure this in some config file, so I don't have
to remember to type it all the time?

sudo pacman -Syu --assume-installed noto-fonts

noto-fonts is pulled as a dependency of plasma-integration, but I
don't want it installed since it takes over the default fonts (ships
an aggressive fontconfig configuration) for many websites, and looks
quite bad *for me* (on a 14" FHD display).
It's also a 90MB package I don't need.
