You're absolutely right :-) In particular, I have found the information 
about the effects fonts could have on the stability and security of an 
operating system and about how browser vendors actually use the font 
metadata in the name table (or rather, generally do not) extremely 
interesting and helpful.

I look forward to the new proposal details, and the results of the 
tests. Thanks for your efforts.
