I am under the impression that the agreement is that no format document will mention same-origin restrictions, but that CSS Fonts will say that the default same-origin restriction for fonts is that it is same-origin, which can be over-ridden with an explicit use of the same-origin header.

You mean explicit use of the From-Origin header, yes?

Part of the present issue is that Glenn is objecting also to CSS Fonts 
specifying same origin. So while I concur that the most recent WG 
decision on the issue was that CSS Fonts was a better place than the 
WOFF format spec to put this (but retaining the WOFF spec text as 'at 
risk' until a definite decision is made elsewhere), this may still be a 
live issue. I suggested the Webfonts Conformance Specification as a 
possible place for such text, since it is not a format document, it is 
chartered to apply to webfonts in general and not just WOFF, so covers 
the same territory as CSS Fonts in this regard, and appears to meet 
Samsung's objection re. expressing same origin in WOFF or CSS Fonts.
