However, if /usr is no longer writeable, I’ll never be able to add any additional fonts in this folder in the future. So, there must be a new preferred location for putting fonts, right? And where would that be, and if so, should I just go ahead and move my existing fonts to this new location?

The fact that /usr will be no longer writable does not imply that /usr/local also won’t. (It is a violation to make /usr/local immutable, I think.) Herb’s document explicitly states that it will be writable.
