Aren't there natural languages in which all (or nearly all) voiceless fricative phones are allophones of the same phoneme? So that, for instance, maybe [f h s S T W] are all allophones of what might as well be written /h/?

Not of an /h/, anyway. I've read that some people classify /h/ as a sonorant rather than a fricative.

Wouldn't surprise me if there was a language with only a phonemic /s/ and allohpones [h], [ʃ], [ʂ], [z], [ʒ], [ʐ] in whatever environments.

[h] at the end of a syllable
[ʃ] before [j i e]
[ʂ] after [u], [r].
[f] in /swV/
voiced counterparts between two vowels.

[x] and [h] are often allophones, aren't they?
