 It's reasonable but it contains other format like eof, woff and web fonts
 are used with css files that specifies those eof, woff and svg files as
 stays same directory.

 If it would be separated to each format, it's bit hassle for users
 to collect those web fonts to one directory like /var/www/some-site/.

 It's handy to put all files to one /usr/share/fonts/web-fonts, IMO.
