Right, it's really just a hint to allow user agents to skip fonts in
formats they don't support.

It might make sense to add "opentype-cff", since underlying platform
support for these fonts is not as universal as fonts that use
TrueType-format glyphs (.ttf).  It's too bad the support for .otf fonts
is somewhat spotty, many of these .otf fonts are wonderful,
typographically rich fonts.
