Argh.. looking at the old minutes there isn't much, and I dimly recall
Jonas stepped in to chat during a break when we weren't minuting.

I think the basic idea was that most folks consider fonts to be part of
styling a page, that they are likely t be loaded from imported CSS rather
than directly specified in the resource, and that the attack vectors we're
defending here are related, so it would be simpler and more intuitive for
most developers to have it work this way, and give font-src as a more
granular way for the paranoid to add additional restrictions if needed.

But I could be remembering incorrectly after a year.  I've cc'd him
directly, perhaps he can correct me.
