Also worth bearing in mind is that, at least for the medium-term  
future, almost all the world's WOFFs will be generated automatically  
by font distributors and font subscription services.

For these fonts, fsType bits will be subservient to arrangements made  
witht the foundry, which would likely include permission to rewrite  
those bits as the WOFF is generated from standard TTF or OTF desktop  
fonts.

To label these systems 'non-conformant' seems to me absurd.
