It may be wise to mention in the tests that the font is being loaded over a network.

Otherwise a combination of slow network, impatient tester, and a browser that renders fallback fonts while the woff is being downloaded could mean that peiple report false negative fails.

In Firefox 4.0b7 I see 'FAIL' for a second or so before seeing 'PASS', and I'm on a fairly fast connection (20Mbit ADSL2+).
