It's true that there has been a claim made that there are organizations that have normative dependencies on CSS3 Fonts; however, there have not been any reference cited to substantiate it. So far, what was offered [1] are the links to ATSC and DVB-MHP standards documents [2] and [3] that normatively reference CSS2, and the follow up search came up with no normative references to CSS3 Fonts WD.
