* On the one hand, requiring submissions to be public domain might
limit the number of submissions, since some authors might not be
willing to give up certain rights.
* On the other hand, having a collection of public domain fonts would
allow for things like including text in the clipart using those
fonts, and the clipart could still be public domain.
* On the gripping hand, do we really want a lot of pictures of text
in the clipart library anyhow?
One almost imagines that an Open Font Library could be a separate (but
related) project, much as a stock-photo library is a separate project.
