I'm not sure about this.

The site doesn't seem to define what it means by a "font". So far we
have Val's PNG symbols and Machado's SVG symbols. Do either of these
count as a font? It would seem to me that the PNG would come under som
sort of images license and the the SVGs under some sort of software

In the "Working Model" diagram, the site talks about "Other software
product bundled for specific languages/scripts", but even so, what we
have so far handles PNGs and SVGs, not fonts.
