Oh!  In that case, you do indeed need control over the CSS.  For most
(all?) of the font-hosting services, though, you can indeed do that -
just copy their CSS file manually into your own (possibly adjusting
links as required, if they're relative), and add a unicode-range
descriptor.

That said, this does sound like a sufficient use-case to consider
adding a third type of source into the 'src' descriptor, which
explicitly refers to fonts exposed through @font-face.
