Sorry for the confusion. I asked about woff files on a Debian email
list, and the response [1] was I should file a bug report against the
package that was choking on the woff files. That package would be the
package containing XeTeX. So I agree, not a Debian bug, but Debian would
receive a bug against the XeTeX package, and presumably forward that bug
to the XeTeX maintainers (which I would imagine are on this xetex list
