Really?  Even with same-origin+CORS?

I'm a little bit alarmed because EOTL w/same-origin+CORS
doesn't seem to provide any protections at all that
won't be provided by TTF/OTF w/same-origin+CORS

EOTL w/s.o.+CORS is arguably even worse if IE<=8
doesn't get patched to add s.o.+CORS.

But if IE<=8 is going to be patched it could just
as well be patched to add TTF/OTF at the same time.
