I agree that hosting fonts would be a headache: everyone's svg
documents would suddenly depend on lilypond.org.

I am sympathetic to the idea that we should embed the fonts in the
SVG, or perhaps provide a command-line option to tell LilyPond to do
so. Inkscape works very well to convert PDFs to SVG, but if we expect
our users to do that, then it's debatable whether we should have an
SVG backend at all. (I mean this seriously: the SVG backend has its
own bugs that are hard to fix; we have no way, currently, to regtest
it; and we could get LilyPond to call inkscape itself where it is
available and SVG is the specified backend; just a thought...)
