Actually, a google search for free fonts turns up an interesting case 
... fonts made by governments or associations that are linked to 
'minority' (in web terms) languages, like Urdu, Tamil, Khmer.  They 
*want* those fonts to be freely usable.

Can we drop this argument as to whether free fonts should be believed 
to exist, or whether commercial fonts should be admitted to be used? 
I don't see it as very productive.
