Definitely. Remember that setting a general policy for font packages
was one of the goals I did put in this gorup....which hasn't happened
yet. Probably needs someone to take the lead for this.

This is probably late to enforce this. We can make this policy a
suggestion for etch an try to enforce it for etch+1
