I'll try to respond to everything in this one message -- please bear

Serious: in terms of Usability, I should not be asked to download a
Burmese font if I am most of my time in western languages.
So we must have a way to avoid the issue of a file that has just one
character in Burmese, perhaps by mistake, inside.
I agree that we need to offer the user a choice of which fonts to
download or to not download any at all.
However, I wouldn't say that it's an issue we need to bother with too
much, given that
1) it's highly unlikely that someone will accidentally use an
open-source Burmese font that's also available in Google Web Fonts or
whatever online repository we settle for
2) if it happens, you'll just have one additional font installed; look
at your font list right now and see how many fonts are actually of use

Actually I'd say that some kind of a mechanism to detect
accidental/residual styles and/or formatting could be useful
(smaller filesize? only saving used styles in a document?) - but
would IMHO be another separate issue.
I agree, and yes, it is a separate issue, so it's not on the list for
the first release.

Should the whiteboard only cover downloading Fonts that are already
being used in a document or also searching for new fonts when
creating a document?
It can cover installing new fonts from the repository as well, yes.
I would keep it simple, though.

just about the Burmese font bit: that's not the in-development
feature. Rather than that, it is likely some sort of PackageKit
integration where LibO notices it isn't yet have a package for a
Burmese font installed and then asks you about that.
Actually, this is something separate from that -- it aims to integrate
with a platform-independent online repository like Google Web Fonts or
the Open Font Library.
