Re: [csswg-drafts] [css-fonts] incorporate mitigations for font based fingerprinting (#4055)

Here is another strawman proposal to try and move things forward:

What if the standard didn't put any limitations on what the page could access as local fonts, but required local fonts to be *specifically, intentionally* loaded into the browser, instead of defaulting to any and all fonts it could find. 

That would seem to both solve the problem of some users wanting additional fonts, but also address significant, in the wild, problem of people being fingerprinted because of things they did on their system completely unrelated to their browser.
