No. I think the From-Origin header is a very clever idea, and as I 
recall there is general agreement in the Webfonts WG that it would be 
better than any font-specific application of SOR/CORS. Our only concern 
with From-Origin is that it isn't real yet.

What I am personally leaning towards now is moving and rewording same 
origin text from the WOFF spec to the chartered but yet-to-be-drafted 
Webfonts Conformance Specification, so that we do not lose it altogether 
while awaiting From-Origin. This would, I think, address the concern of 
WG members that led us to identify the current text as 'at risk' while 
not removing it yet.

We have a conference call on Wednesday, and I'm sure all this will be on 
the agenda.
