In Mozilla, @font-face can be disabled completely by toggling
gfx.downloadable_fonts.enabled and restarting the browser.

But yes, extensions to control use of src:url() on a per site
basis may become desirable.

In Mozilla, @font-face does not remove the ability for users to
disable author fonts (on Linux, at least - I haven't checked
implementations for other platforms).

This is still available through either of the following:

 Edit -> Preferences -> Content -> Advanced ->
 "Allow pages to choose their own fonts, instead of my selections above."

 View -> Page Style -> No Style
