Except the process of making a .webfont would involve wrapping the font 
data, not editing the font data. So the date of creation of the font 
data, as recorded in the head table, would differ from the date of 
creation of the .webfont wrapper, which is what would be recorded in the 
info.xml file.

I understand that Tal and Erik are intending to respond in detail to 
your summary of .webfont and ZOT. I think you have misunderstood some 
aspects of .webfont, but will let them clarify these.
