I don’t necessarily disagree with the default same-origin restriction and its opt-in cross-origin relaxation for *Web Fonts*, I question its merits for *CSS Fonts*, because I see none whatsoever.

Exactly, and the CSS Fonts module is just one part of “web fonts”. Other parts are supported font formats, e.g. WOFF, and font distribution models, e.g. HTTP with mandatory CORS/FO.
