It is possible to bypass max font using iframe (also object/frame i guess),

1st demo shows that each iframe instance has own max_font.
If you create many iframes with less than max_fonts in each, it not reset window.parent fonts.

2nd, full bruteforce script with 512 fonts array.
It dynamically creates many iframes with N fonts in each.
Each iframe separately executes typical js/css detection mmmmlliii script with a short given set of fonts, and sends offsetWidth/Heights to parent script via postMessage.
Parent script collect all answers and then compare results.
