Oh, I'm sure they'll get right on it and that it will immediately and magically
update every .htaccess file in production :) 

More seriously, I would argue the very fact that you're asking this settles which 
model is easiest for web authors who license WOFFs: the one where fonts loaded 
from @font-face are same-origin by default..

The need to convince people to update software and/or hundreds of thousands of 
production configurations does not seem an attractive feature for the use-case 
and requirements that concern us.
