Petition for a sane EULA

Hi Typophiles,

I'd very much like to support independent type foundries. However, it seems that they generally have more restrictive licenses than the big names. Maybe this is because they're unaware if that is legally enforcable or not?

I'd like to propose the following EULA, inspired by the VIllage / Incubator EULA. Comments are given in {COMMENT}:

This is an agreement between you, the purchaser, and [FOUNDRY]. In accepting the terms of this agreement, you acknowledge understanding and promise to comply with its terms. If you do not accept the terms, please do not complete the purchase transaction.

I've been researching the various means to embed fonts on the web off and on lately, and aside from giving me a headache with its numerous options and implementation methods, there was something about it that didn't sit with me. Foundries are starting to charge extra for the right to embed fonts on the web. I'm sure you're all aware of this by now, and from the lack of discussion about it that I could find here, I'd suppose you range from okay with it to gung-ho.
