You say this as if no packager has a way to display and perhaps require 
approval of the license nor any way to fetch something remote as part of 
the installation process, e.g., the Microsoft "freely" supplied TTF 
files ...

  # zypper install fetchmsttfonts
  [...packager stuff...]
  (1/1) Installing: fetchmsttfonts-11.4-42.28.noarch .........................................[done]
  Running: fetchmsttfonts-11.4-42.28-fetchmsttfonts.sh.txt (fetchmsttfonts, /var/adm/update-scripts)

I bet apt, dnf, pacman, pkg_add, yum, etc., do as well -- actually I 
know some of those do.  Perhaps fetching as part of installing is less 
desireable than already present at the outset, but it might appease ARIN 
and be workable (or superior) for many.
