I'd like to point out 3 things:
Fonts are part of a theme, as designed by the author. A theme without
working font is just as broken as if would show the build-in wps. And we
should not ship broken themes. So, either ship the font, or don't ship
the theme at all.

The other thing is, that Rockbox should work out of the box, and should
not require extra downloads for core features (and the theming and font
engine is a core feature, whereas doom is not).
IMO it's essential for the user experience, that, when he goes to browse
the themes, that all themes just work when he selects one.

Kind regards
