To be brutal, I have little love for @font-face, I think it's a bad
spec, and I won't cry if it goes nowhere. I won't stand in the way of
people who want to promote it, but only if they are careful not to push
it at the cost of other use cases. Those cases require proper versionned
zips or tarballs with detached license files.
