Just curious (sorry  to keep the debate about the fonts  up), but from a
performance  point of view,  how client-side  fonts perform  compared to
server-side? AFAIK, client-side fonts  rely on Render extension which is
accelerated more or  less by most graphics drivers,  so it should behave
reasonable well (better?) compared to server-side fonts, isn't it?
