Looks like the best of both approaches to me.
I echo Thomas Phinney's endorsement. Definitely the right track. Awesome

Subject: WebOTF Proposal

We, (Jonathan Kew, Erik van Blokland and myself) have combined our ZOT and
.webfont proposals into a new WebOTF proposal. The full specification is

In short:
- The ZOT compression scheme is retained.
- The XML data from the .webfont proposal, in a reduced and refactored form,
is stored within the WebOTF file.

We are still endorsing the same-origin restrictions and CORS concepts that
have been discussed. We are still hopeful that browsers will find ways to
display the meta data stored in the font.

We'd love to know what you think.
