I don't think W3C should create a Font Working Group as per the
proposed charter:

  http://www.w3.org/2009/03/fonts-wg-charter

By creating a Working Group, W3C signals that webfonts are not yet
ready for use, and that more technical work is necessary. This is not
the case.

We have four interoperable implementations of webfonts: Gecko, Presto,
Prince, Webkit.

These implementations have followed W3C Recommendations when
implementing web fonts, and W3C should support the efforts (e.g., by
using web fonts on their pages) rather than sending a "wait!" signal.

Cheers,

-h&kon
