The latest release (7/27) tweaked the ambiguous wording but still does not refer to the fonts required for running through the Microsoft tests, the Ahem variations listed below.

The "are otherwise of no value" is ambiguous.  I would suggest instead:

  "Some of the font-related tests require fonts to be
   installed before running the tests.  These tests are
   marked with the 'font' flag in their metadata."
  
There's no mention or link to the additional fonts required for some of Microsoft's tests, the ones in this directory:

  contributors/microsoft/submitted/support/AHEM_Ahem!.TTF
  contributors/microsoft/submitted/support/AHEM_MissingItalicOblique.TTF
  contributors/microsoft/submitted/support/AHEM_MissingNormal.TTF
  contributors/microsoft/submitted/support/AHEM_SmallCaps.TTF
  contributors/microsoft/submitted/support/AHEM_WhiteSpace.TTF
  contributors/microsoft/submitted/support/AHEM_cursive.TTF
  contributors/microsoft/submitted/support/AHEM_default.TTF
  contributors/microsoft/submitted/support/AHEM_fantasy.TTF
  contributors/microsoft/submitted/support/AHEM_inherit.TTF
  contributors/microsoft/submitted/support/AHEM_initial.TTF
  contributors/microsoft/submitted/support/AHEM_monospace.TTF
  contributors/microsoft/submitted/support/AHEM_sans-serif.TTF
  contributors/microsoft/submitted/support/AHEM_serif.TTF
  
Rather than have several different links that point to a wiki page that in turn points to several different sets of fonts, why not simply have a direct link to a single zipfile with all required fonts.
