One of the reasons we need a component extensions framework is that it
is not currently possible to integrate functionality like view source,
search, etc. Each plugin has its own method, and doesn't even get to
add its method onto the menu when its component has focus.

Yes, typically you will right click or otherwise bring up a context
menu to get view source for svg.

04 tests both the @font-face construct and the 'fetch remote font'.
Recently I made the new test so that these were separately tested.

And to do that, you will need a test suite.
