Revert 169206 "Enable Woff 2.0 font compression format by default"

The Working Group is considering a couple of minor but potentially
compatibility breaking changes to the spec. Given the risk, we decided
to postpone WOFF 2.0 support to M36.
I will merge this change to M35 branch, and then re-enable it on trunk.

Reland r169206 "Enable Woff 2.0 font compression format by default"

This feature was once enabled in M35 but we had to unlaunch it (wire
format changes being under consideration). The decoder patch for the
format change is landed [1], and we are not expecting further format
change at the moment.
