This was a concern for us as well.

So when we posted the 2.1 update, we wrote an explanation to all  
foundries which had offered support (at that time, the list grew since  
then. We pointed out that we'd understand retraction if the support  
was contingent on browser support of <allow>. We haven't received any  
news of foundries retracting support for .webfont. We did receive  
replies re-confirming support.

I know this is a very open ended and informal poll, but I think one  
can interpret it that there was no public outcry amongst foundries  
because of dropping allow in the 2.1 proposal.
