I don't see anything offensive about this format, and from what I
recall the ZOT compression works really well for fonts.  I could
definitely see myself using this in a couple of years, once enough of
the market had support for it.  If I recall, the foundries were
generally pretty happy with .webfont, which means it's likely that
we'll see good adoption of this format in sales.

For now, of course, I'd love to see *both* this and EOTL supported, so
I have an interop format now, and then an even better interop format
in a couple of years.  The sooner we get this stuff out the door, the
better, in my opinion.  ^_^
