Embedding fonts in our own documents needs to pay attention to the font
embedding policiy recorded in TrueType fonts: No Embedding Allowed,
Preview&Print, Editable, and Installable. This needs to be communicated to the
user who wants to use font embedding. Most fonts seem to allow for Preview&Print.

Embedding a font has specific advantages over using a graphic. Fonts have hinting information, so they look good at small sizes.
I also don't understand why OpenOffice can embed fonts for publishing to PDF, but not for other purposes. As long as the embedding flag in the font is respected, that should be sufficient.
