This is an excellent idea. 

George mentions several types in his message:

  Content-Type: font/truetype
  Content-Type: font/opentype
  Content-Type: font/type1
  Content-Type: font/type3
  Content-Type: font/cff

Do these make sense? Which other formats should be listed?

A draft RFC along the lines of this one may be a way to start:
