How about hosting the fonts on www.lilypond.org and referencing them in the @font-face definition?

IMHO, this is as good (or as bad) as a default as 'serif'.  If you
want SVG images to be similar to, say, PDF output, you have

    * to exactly specify which font you want to use for text, and
    * to convert glyphs to paths, for example, by postprocessing
      LilyPond's output SVG file with inkscape's `-T` option.
Could we possibly offer the option to embed the fonts inside of the
SVG file [...]
This is a non-trivial issue.  It's rather straightforward to embed
fonts into an SVG file using

     @font-face {
       font-family: 'foobar';
       src: url(data: application/font-woff2;
                charset = utf-8;
                base64, d09GMgABAAAAAA70AA8AAAAAGF ...)
       font-weight: normal;
       font-style: normal;

The tricky part, however, is font subsetting to make the SVG files
small.  IMHO, this is outside of LilyPond's scope.

Another possibility is creating a PDF with LilyPond, then loading it
into inkscape, which can automatically convert all fonts to paths.
This way, you get SVGs that are identical to the PDFs – I think this
is good enough for having scalable images on web pages and the like.
