Probably not. We just haven't applied the policy draft entirely.

IMHO, when there is only one binary package for a source package, I
see no strong point in having the binary package using ttf-foo or

Of course, if you want to have separate packages, then you need to
find a method to name them.

How about fonts-<fontname>-{otf|ttf}?
