Even though the original core Microsoft Web fonts are not available 
directly from Microsoft anymore, they are available (legally) on the Web:

If someone were to write a utility to automatically extract the files 
and use the TrueType directly, it might not be a big deal, and would 
probably be more legal than the current scenario, I'm guessing.
