Description

Wordpress is an open source software bundle. Every necessary dependency is included, but the Open Sans font is not included and reloaded from Google on every page accessing WP. This font should either be included in the WP source or removed. Or an option to disable this external loading should be given.

To change will enhance the privacy und security for all users that access a Wordpress site. (cf. http://www.riskiq.com/resources/blog/jquerycom-malware-attack-puts-privileged-enterprise-it-accounts-risk)

The URL is hard coded in the Wordpress core file /wp-includes/script-loader.php in line 603

This desire is now solved by various plugins, but this is an enhancement for the Wordpress core.
