The event sounds reasonable, but can it really be called "load"? Won't that
trigger onload handlers that have been attached to the document? Seems to
me it should be called "fontload" or something like that.

I'm less enthusiastic about APIs to trigger explicit loading, but it looks
like you aren't working on those at the moment?

“You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’
But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,
that you may be children of your Father in heaven. ... If you love those
who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors
doing that? And if you greet only your own people, what are you doing more
than others?" [Matthew 5:43-47]
