The web font format discussion, in general.  It seems to me that further
argument in this venue serves only to make people grumpier and more
entrenched in their positions.

I would like to suggest that the topic be tabled for several months,
after which we can have a look at actual web usage of the feature as it
now exists in the various popular browsers, and perhaps have a more
informed idea of what still needs to be done.

(I like your licensing-wrapper MIME type idea, Thomas, but www-style
really isn't the venue for it - why don't you write an RFC?)
