Installing anything via an rpm will be just as legal (or not) as
installing it by other means

So you're asking for a font-specific installation method.
Why not add a clipart-specific one? And a templates-specific one? And a
palette-specific one?

This quickly ends up an unmanageable mess wasting the time of everyone
involved.

You already have a limited user-level font installation method for
casual users (or had, a bug is open to resurect it). Anything more
complex, such as a system-wide method needing to replicate all the work
we already do in rpm, is a waste of resources.

The key word here is seems. Like many other "shortcuts", trying to avoid
making an rpm will end up a lot more work unless you really know what
you're doing (which you only will after having made a few rpms).
