says:

"In Windows 7, we needed a solution that would work for all languages 
and for all fonts, so we created a hybrid approach that combines 
information from the font itself with metadata (an XML file that 
provides the information about the fonts on the system)."

So obviously Microsoft already have developed their own XML metadata 
format for fonts....
