@hfhchan Thank you for the comment!  I'm not familiar with Seal Script; could you share more information about it if you have links?

Regarding the specific problem you mention though, I think, in a sense, thats the easier problem, where there is an expectation that sites can be updated.  @tabatkins had a great suggestion for a way that sites could explicitly requests fonts off disk with user involvement, and I think would cover the use case you describe.

In a sense, all the complexity in the above discussion is mostly about cases where we can't expect sites to update, and how to provide privacy to users of sites that require non-common fonts there.
