No it would not, Tab.  It might make you happy; it might
make Dave Crossland happy; but it would not make /all/
web designers happy by any means, so unless you meant by
"/we/ font designers" the subset of all font designers
that would be happy to use only free fonts, then I am
afraid that your assertion is demonstrably incorrect.
