SVG, various X font formats, Windows bitmap fonts formats, etc.

As you are distinguishing between type1 and type3 PostScript fonts, you 
probably need to distinguish between EOT and basic OpenType.  (The only 
reason you would want to distinguish between type1 and type3 is for 
content negotiation, so you may want to consider the effect on the 
length of the HTTP Accept header.

RFC1855 says there should be an address here, but, in a world of spam,
that is no longer good advice, as archive address hiding may not work.
