John, can you elaborate on which parts are overly complex, and why? Is it
the timers?

One thing I'm wondering about is whether we can/should uncouple timers from
rendering strategy:
- the font rendering strategy varies based on particular content on the
page; it's a property on the content, not the font.
- the font fetch timeout is a property on the font resource.

I think the above two can be tackled as separate topics, which can help
clarify naming and simplify the solution.
