Speaking only for myself, I can't see that CSS 2.1 provides any specific
information as to why @font-face was removed, other than the general
statement that the specification "consists of all CSS features that are
implemented interoperably".

Or are you saying that we already have two interoperable XML user agents
that support @font-face?
