This is going to be pretty common for anything that uses the bootstrap CSS framework, since glyphicons is bundled as part of it. I do not see much benefit from packaging this separately, especially as the license for the glyphicons halflings font included with bootstrap is MIT, but CC-BY from the upstream (glyphicons.org).
