Is this a role that might be coordinated with the existing W3C Webfonts 
working group? I can imagine that the make-up of any CSS Fonts Task 
Force might correspond pretty exactly to membership of the Webfonts 
working group: a mix of font experts and browser engineers focused on 
text layout.

FYI: at the recent Webfonts WG face-to-face in Portland, we also 
discussed setting up a community group to discuss aspects of font 
support beyond the scope of the current Webfonts WG charter (e.g. an OFF 
profile for webfonts, as proposed by Adam Twardoch).
