I reserve the right to have gotten Ascender's message wrong, but in my current reading of, the point of this announcement is that they license EOT (LITE) fonts for web use. There is no single word that they license raw TTF/OTF fonts for web use.

While it may be true that foundries might start offering web font licenses soon, the format question is a different issue. The thing that I am pretty certain about is that this format will not be raw TTF/OTF fonts.
