Looking at the Web Fonts spec, it seems to me that it is way too  
complex right now (and that this is probably a significant reason  
that it hasn't seen more success in being implemented).

Wouldn't it be sufficient to simply support the addition of URIs to  
font-family?  This would work properly with fallback, and thus could  
work in conjunction with installed fonts on the system, and the URI  
could be to a zip file that contained all the variants of a font as  
well if needed.
