I think its unreasonable to expect every person publishing a blog who
makes their own subset to contact every copyright holder every time
they want to use a new OFL-RFN web font.
I think the desirable effect of RFNs can be preserved with a trademark
license, while alleviating the undesirable effect of prohibiting
subsetting and other trivial changes while retaining the name users
are familiar with.
I note that SIL itself also asserts both RFN and trademark rights on
its font names; so if you are keen to maximize control over your font
names, it may make sense to do what I'm suggestion in addition to
RFNs, rather than replacing them.
