Beyond the privacy implications if these are loaded from a third-party website, they also consume bandwidth.

I was going to open a ticket for this very same reason. I suppose this needs PrivacyView fork to work, as you marked it to 4.x version, is that correct?

Correct. It would be possible to try to block them based on their file names, and particularly their file extensions, but this would be an incomplete solutions as the fonts don't necessarily need to have any particular file extension listed in the URL. Hence, the need to wait for a hook in the WebView than can be called when a remote font is being loaded.
