What do you mean "has no rootstrings"? You'd want IE (<=8) to process rootstrings contained in EOTL, to make it easier for authors to comply with font licensing.
If licenses do require that, we’ll revisit. Ascender made the proposal and does not require them.

3. Set the embedding level to one of 0x0000 (installable), 0x0004 (preview and print), 0x0008 (editable), 0x0100 (no subsetting)

Seems to me it would be simplest to require the EOTL embedding level bits to be exactly 0x0008. The other values don't make sense for Web fonts.

True.
