TTF files are executables too. FON files are Windows bitmap fonts.

No, they are not executable.

TTF files include programs (sets of instructions) that generate glyphs and
hinting, thus are executable. That you cannot run them from a shell prompt
doesn't change that character.

Maybe, but they are not executables, they should not have the executable flag in linux. They don't have it in my system and they work.
