Hello Marin, all,

Besides vendor-specific types, the only registered font type that I am aware of is 'application/font-woff'. W3C WebFonts WG has submitted a registration for this subtype about a year ago, and the text of the registration is available as Annex B of the WOFF specification: http://dev.w3.org/webfonts/WOFF/spec/#appendix-b

ISO SC29/WG11 has prepared the draft to register application/font-sfnt but it wasn't submitted yet. 

Thank you,
Vlad
