That's reasonable, but I think the documentation of the test should 
clarify the status of the individual test objects, vis ā vis web 
standards, and explain what is being tested and why. Testing handling of 
TTF/OTF as a delivered payload is different from giving the impression 
that the test requires a browser to support download of raw TTF/OTF files.
