I had understood Mirek's proposal to mean that there would be one "official"
online font repository, or perhaps several. 

Embedding a non-embeddable font in a document file is simply not possible,
according to what I've read so far. Installing an installable font embedded
in a file as a system font was once possible (in Windows) but not anymore. 

So of the four levels of embedding/licensing, "Installable" is irrelevant
because inoperative (in Windows). "Embeddable" is not a worry because it is
governed by the font itself, likewise "Print/Preview". Even if I wanted to
breach the license by embedding when I am not allowed to I could not. The
same for "No embedding allowed" -- again, the font controls and a user has
no say in the matter.

I guess there would still be the matter of distribution/copying rights to
worry about, which is distinct from the four levels of embedding licensing.

And, good point about some people not being online all the time.

Without the font being packaged in the document the only solution would
then be to post them on line, encouraging  breaking the license terms,
unless I had a personal online font repository.
