By the way: I raised my proposal just because of discussion in 
"[css3-webfonts] Downloaded fonts should not..." thread :)

Personally I would like to see the following behavior:

* The fonts in @font-face are like images, stylesheets, and the page 
itself - they are only temporatory and not installed in system (as far 
as I know, it is also impossible on UNIX platforms as a user other than 
root without SUIDs).
* If the font's name collide with system fonts, the @font-face font has 
higher priority.
