I think the underlying issue here is whether font loads should apply a
same-origin restriction by default. As far as I know, there's nothing in the
CORS spec that ties it to a particular *motivation* for same-origin
restriction, or to particular resource types. CORS should be applicable to
any kind of same-origin restriction.
