I am concerned that defining the new bit as proposed ("No web use allowed") would automatically make all existing fonts 'allowed' for web use, which I doubt has ever been an intent. The reversed interpretation "Web use allowed" would be safe with regard to existing fonts, and it would also play nicely with the existing definition of other embedding restrictions, including "Restricted License Embedding" - if both bits are set it would be clearly understood that document embedding is restricted while web use is allowed.

Yes, that is a better idea.
