As part of implementing TTF support, Microsoft could change the EULA.

(And would using EOT really not violate the EULA? Can you point me to the 
EULA in question? I don't recall ever reading any EULA that granted me 
redistribution rights for Microsoft fonts, even redistribution rights 
limited to DRMed, site-locked derivative versions, and I tend to read 
any EULA I agree to.)
