The real problem with publishing things is that if I distribute
of many things I must follow the license, some say I need to distribute
sources, some say that I need to distribute a copy of the license, etc.
Making files downloadable by default adds to the distributor more work
(legal) because they must comply with their licenses. So if I put an
open service of an Apache licensed web application, I will start
distributing fonts with other licenses without ever noticing, for
example GPL+3 (nothing against any license, only examples of the things
people should care when distributing free/open licensed code/assets)
Again, the fonts available in Fedora are carefully vetted and none of them
have redistribution restrictions (and even for those with GPLish licenses
a large part of the font community considers the font file is the font
source, so you can't redistribute one without the other)
I understand your point but please take another example.
