Hey, this koolaid tastes funny!

Sorry, Dave: it doesn't need to 'stand to reason', because some of us 
actually know what Peter's motivation was in developing this hack. It is 
an attempt at a workaround, trying to disguise the nakedness of the font 
by disfiguring its private parts. It is a reaction *against* naked font 
linking, not a vote in its favour.

Typotheque supports the .webfont proposal.
