So basically I have to design for more than one option? If that's always the case why bother renting in the first place?

However I feel Typekit is still starting, and probably needs money to support its development. Your vision is right on, the work will be lost, and so is the process around pay a month fee for beautiful type. I mean people have a hard time paying a month fee for anything, we pirate music, pirate internet: this culture is intentionally free, and if they miss it, they will miss the culture too. I might be wrong, maybe the audience will adopt the rent a font idea, and go with it. Maybe in testaments, you will start to see monthly fees going to your internet host, domain name, and font kit…

I just feels odd to 'rent' fonts as you say. The people seem to like TypeKit though, I guess the market will decide. For me, a bigger issue would be for designers doing client work. It's just so much easier to pass through a one time cost to a client compared to a recurring cost.
