It was really no benefit for GTK+-based ports, this move was made so
that other ports (in this case EFL) could use the font implementation
that is not tied to GTK+.

While I agree with the rest of your email, I failed to understand the
actual problem this caused. Is it because the include path for
platform/graphics/cairo is coming before the one you were using, and
then picking up the wrong file on include?
