Does this imply that a local font could not be used for a local CSS  
document if it is not marked as allowed for embedding? Or is this  
somehow tied to the transport mechanism? So, only files served using a  
scheme that requires network access would require this? What about  
other forms of encryption/obfuscation? Would those be illegal?
