1. promoting a good complement of libre fonts so more are installed by
2. spending their dev time in implementing stuff like font-stretch
@font-face is just a way to inject more mis-licensed, bitrotten and
buggy fonts in the system. Whoever though people writing CSS files are
the right ones to vet font files for suitability should be shot.
I mean, most of them have *still* not realised they could use "sans"
instead of/in addition to "arial" in their rules.
If they had taken the same path for video codecs we'd have *no* browser
support for ogg and theora today and a lot of would-be site authors
specifying divX/mpeg4 all over the place.
