But what exactly - short of extracting the fonts - would not fit that term?
I have a hard time coming up with any example here. And extracting the fonts
is what the copyright holders decidedly did not want (e.g., making a Windows
font file out of them or similar). To me, the above "restriction" sounds
entirely reasonable and plausible.
