The policy requires that a license is given to produce the charts and 
related documents. No more, no less. This allows people and 
organizations to donate a free license for use by the editors, but 
otherwise seek for commercial distribution of their work. In other 
words, they retain all the rights to their intellectual property that 
are not strictly required for the encoding process.

Nothing prevents people to put their fonts in the public domain, if they 
so desire, but that can't be a requirement of the character encoding 

Debbie might approach people who have provided chart fonts with a query 
as to whether they might like to issue a broader license, or to list 
their fonts with sites that distribute free fonts  - in some cases they 
might be motivated as this might increase the chance that their script 
is used and implemented.

But we need to be very clear that this would be highly voluntary.
