Most of the important foundries are supporting #webfont

It’s true. With this much weight behind the .webfont proposal (2.1), it has to should be taken seriously.

The foundries listed below have expressed their support for the WebOTF proposal. The term “support” is understood to be general approval of the proposal and its intentions, not an exclusive commitment to it, or a formal endorsement of it.

Update: Tal Leming and Erik van Blokland, along with the help of Jonathan Kew (Mozilla), have written an updated proposal and re-christened the format, WebOTF. Read the new proposal. Until I hear back from all foundries, only those foundries in italic have stated their support of this new updated format.

John Gruber supports it too. TypeKit also likes the idea of it.

Based on what I understand, I am biased toward WOFF. But I should mention there is another format, in addition to WOFF, also garnering support for EOT Lite as another format being considered.

[Note: This is an evolving post. As new foundries are known to support it I will add them.]
