CWT for "Compatible Web Type" sounds too flattering.

How about LWT (if available) for "Legacy Web Type". 

Variations:

LFF -  Legacy Font  File/Format/Face

LWF - Legacy Web Font

LET - Legacy Embedded Type

 

I like the word "legacy" - it brands it as a hold-over from a previous era
slated for ultimate obsolescence.

 

Cheers,
