Again, clumsy.  You burden authors with having to include root strings
for all possible servers in their production workflow.  You effectively
break the use of relative URL's for font URL's, since the data at the
end of those relative URL's would be tied to a specific set of absolute

And this doesn't address the web cache problem noted by Dave Singer,
that's actually a tougher problem to solve.  Whatever algorithm is
generating the cache URL would now need to regenerate font data so that
the root string matched the cache location.
