As maintainer (non-DD) of the following two fonts, I think this is a
great idea.

There are a few other fonts I'd like to see in Debian (another Khmer
one, and a few Burmese Unicode ones).

It might be good to write a font policy (if one does not exist), with
suggested package names and standards for package descriptions,
dependencies and the like.

We should also ensure that all the fonts packages have correct debtags.
We could also search for binary packages that duplicate font files
instead of depending on them (even tho there are lintian warnings).

I also think that this project has a bit in common with debian-i18n,
perhaps they could be informed too?
