Its no longer a deliverable of the proposed Working Group.

The conformance requirement will be that WOFF must be supported and other formats may be supported. So implementations which plan to support it can of course do so. Just like they may already support other formats (EOT, CFF, raw TT/OT, SVG). 

Are you aware of implementations which plan to add CWT support?
