I haven't seen these comments, but we just fixed things so that 
wptrunner (and hence, |wpt run|, the wpt dashboard, etc.) can install 
Ahem automatically. I don't know if that has caused these comments, or 
postdates them, or what.

In any case I feel like requiring people to include it as a webfont is 
unnecessary overhead compared to the status quo, so I would prefer not 
to change for that reason.
