Hm... unless there is more input on this I'll go for the BuildRequires + 
bundling exception. This will take some time, have some fonts to package.

There will probably be more of this, fedora-review is updated with a new 
test looking for bundled font files.My gut feeling is also  that there 
are some other bundled fonts in existing packages...

Thanks again!
