SVG1.1 spec, on session 20:
The purpose of SVG fonts is to allow for delivery of glyph outlines in
display-only environments. SVG fonts that accompany Web pages must
supported only in browsing and viewing situations. Graphics editing
applications or file translation tools must not attempt to convert SVG fonts
into system fonts. The intent is that SVG files be interchangeable between
two content creators, but not the SVG fonts that might accompany these SVG
files. *Instead, each content creator will need to license the given font
before being able to successfully edit the SVG file.* The
indicates the name of licensed font to use for editing.
Am I getting confused or is this part of the spec really promoting the use
of DRM techniques for SVG Fonts?
