This is highly nontrivial to do on X, eg, where font handling is completely server-side.

The licenses are relevant if the font _formats_ themselves are not disclosed (which is the point that the parent poster was trying to make; that is the current state of things with all the "downloadable font" stuff out there, as I understand it. Sure, we could support yet _another_ downloadable font format, but who'd use it given the existing ones?).
