Well, let's recognize that there is a 
difference between a negotiation with a
server about whether that server chooses
to provide a font file and a restriction
upon what a client program is permitted to
with a font file that is already in hand.

Do you understand that difference?  We
can talk about the significance of that
difference if you have doubts about it but
for starters - you see that distinction, right?
