I think i'm in agreement with Christian here, though i would phrase it

I'm OK with considering *.ttf files as "source" files when no other
preferred form for modification exists.

That is, if the font maker upstream uses something else to generate the
.ttf (or .otf, etc) files, then the .ttf is *not* sufficient to satisfy
the DFSG.

But when upstream just modifies and publishes .ttfs directly, there's no
reason for debian to demand another format.
