That's what EOT fonts already do, and it is that model that people are 
rejecting in this thread.  Actually, the sharability information (people 
have referred to this as machine readable licences) doesn't even need 
EOT.  EOT basically is a domain whitelisting wrapper.

Basically, you are proposing to keep the status quo ante.
