Given that OpenType, Embedded OpenType and Web Open Font Format are just
slightly fancy version of TrueType,

That's not 100 % correct. There are TrueType-OTF fonts (quadratic
splines), normally .ttf and Type1/Postscript-OTF (cubic splines) fonts,
normally .otf.

However, I think that detail is negligible for packaging. :)

As I said, slightly fancy (which for Type1/PS actually means un-fancy ;) )

Heh, the argument can be religious :)

Installing in /usr/share/fonts/truetype would be most convenient, IMO,
too, as freetype and others look up this directory as the primary

SVG is a different thing, and I also don't think we need it.
Or, if any, provide it in an individual package.
