K3 and K4 already have these fonts. Look at the changelogs. As I wrote here: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...&postcount=319

They can be easily obtained with K3/K4 files and applying binary diffs gotten from kindletools extraction of the deltas (kindle 4.1.0 and kindle keyboard 3.4). I did that and ended up with the system fonts Caecilia at version 5.40. The latest ones in K5 are at version 5.11. But I have not found a way to use them because that font hack does not allow to use same named fonts with different version. If someone finds a nice way to replace them in the main filesystem then it will work.
