Yes, ttc files are an obvious exception. You just have to hope the
result is small enough no one will feel like blacklisting it to save cd
space. Hopefully the 'different capabilities' risk won't apply in this
case and packagekit will be able to manage them anyway.

Be very careful about Droid, the general SDK license file says it's
Apache2, but the bundled fonts have metadata that claims otherwise, and
I'd be against merging Droid or any derivative in Fedora before Google
clarifies the situation (and in typical Google they don't talk to others
about problems).
