Earlier this week, the Web Fonts WG published a LCWD of "WOFF File 
Format 1.0" and Chris Lilley suggested WebApps review this spec:


This LC has a normative reference to CORS and and a normative 
requirement for the spec's UAs re CORS:


The primary purpose of the WOFF format is to package fonts linked to Web 
documents by means of CSS @font-face rules. When using such fonts, user 
agents MUST implement a 'same-origin restriction' on the downloading of 
WOFF files using the same-origin matching algorithm described in the 
HTML5 specification ([HTML5 Section 5.3: Origin]). The origin of the 
stylesheet containing @font-face declarations is not used when deciding 
whether a WOFF file is same-origin or not, only the origin of containing 
document is used. User agents MUST also implement the ability to relax 
this restriction using Cross-Origin Resource Sharing [CORS]. Thus, sites 
can explicitly allow cross-site downloading of WOFF files using the 
Access-Control-Allow-Origin HTTP header.

If you have any comments, send them by December 14 to:
