Which applications distribute their own fonts?  Which applications
could share one or more font-types with other applications?  Write a
specification proposal.

Also, would we only address this for only LSB applications or would
you want to address *all* software on the system (under /usr/share).

The TeX Directory Structure document may be helpful.


At this point, I wouldn't characterize this problem as an application
portability killer, but it's worth looking into.
