    I agree.

    The only difficulty, Peter, is that, whereas the earliest versions of the
    better fonts bear my company's copyright notice, that notice is missing
    from versions of those same fonts produced in latter years. If you can
    persuade the company whose copyright notice they currently bear to agree to
    your proposal, as set out above, mine will not object to that.
