As the proposal said, we are interested in hearing from the browser  
developers on two possible ways of handling the <allow> element:

1. An unobtrusive alert system based on matching the viewed URL to the  
<allow> element. This is not the same as complete rejection of the  
fonts.
2. A "Page Info" interface element that would show the contents of the  
<allow> element, along with the other relevant metadata, to the user  
upon request.

On idea 1, John, Sylvain and Håkon seem to have indicates that they  
could not accept this.
On idea 2, John seems to have implied interest.
