It would be nice if there were a reliable way for Web authors to be
notified when their @font-face resources have successfully loaded.
Currently authors resort to several hacks to acheive this.

One option would be to have objects in the CSSOM that correspond to each
embedded resource referenced from within the loaded stylesheets. Authors
could then attach event handlers to such objects, query their current
state, etc.

Another, perhaps more author-friendly option would be for some new event
to be fired at the Document whenever a resource linked to in CSS gets
loaded. The event would carry information about which resource(s) it
refers to.
