Good points. The major drawback that I saw was that a fonts:/ url is a rather 
hidden feature and that people are more likely to look into the control 
center for such functionality. But such a button would indeed provide a 
visible entrypoint and at the same time educate the user that (s)he can use 
the fonts:/ url for that.
