To the best of my knowledge, that is not the case. Most hosting providers these days give their customers a way to customize response headers. Those few that do not would likely also not enable sending the correct Content-Type for WOFF fonts, which would likely either defeat same-origin restrictions tied to the format or simply not work at all. So I don't think it is sensible to focus on highly locked down hosting scenarios.
