I prefer the new function, rather than overloading the format 
specifier. The font/* top level type includes a field for the css 
@font-face format string, fone for each or each media type. (Indeed, 
the whole reason we have a format string is because there were no MIME
 types for fonts, and adding them was strongly resisted at the time). 
Overloading it with the requires stuff is awkward, a separate function
 seems cleaner.
