My personal part of the consensus is that a standard well-researched
license like the OFL is better than the current alternatives. If there
was a GPL-ish font license I'd push for it instead but the FSF didn't
really bother with it so far and Red Hat Liberation licensing shows what
a mess it can all become when projects try to adapt the GPL to a context
it was not designed for (and RH is supposed to understand the GPL).
