Yes, but IMHO that's bypassing cc-Host's description features and
therefore not ideal and confusing.
Whithout clear guidelines and a licensing audit of what we currently
have we're just another fonts site...
Also I don't think we want to encourage the distribution and use of GPL
fonts without an embedding exception...
And yes we need to work on improving the exception...
