Actually, the current policy forbids fonts anywhere but in the standard
filesystem paths


“Packagers MUST package each font family in a separate (noarch.rpm)
“Creating font packages or subpackages in Fedora is done using the
fontpackages-devel package”

And fontpackages-devel won't let you install fonts anywhere but in the
standard paths.

I'm not convinced at all this needs changing, since mod_alias permits
mapping of system paths anywhere you want in your URL space.
