A mixed-format format could be rapidly developed and tested in 
SVG+ECMAScript on the client side with browsers that support SVG Fonts. 
Many devs have used JS to parse binary.

The browser supporting SVG Fonts enables faster prototyping and development.

Would Mozilla be supportive of SVG Font development if other vendors 
were supportive of OpenType w/ SVG glyph tables?

I'd like to see both. I use the former a lot in development and the 
latter would be nice for deployment.
