Great, that's exactly what I had in mind.

How do I get the SPML files?
If you're going to create an alternate form, then a simple list of
symbols is ok (I can only trim the font at the symbol level, if a single
fill/rotation combination is in use I have to include the whole 96 glyphs).

Why? I didn't understand. The test page I sent to the list already has
a reduced (web) font and it works with the current unicode stream.
