Those old IE versions include all those that work on Windows XP. I'm
extremely hesitant to say "you can't support webfonts in IE on XP in
Fedora"; that's still a huge userbase for webapp developers to ignore.
Even if you want to leave out WOFF there's also the matter of SVG
fonts, which cannot be replaced by TTF/OTF in some instances.

I don't want "a gazillion different formats", just those specifically
permitted by the W3C.
