So, let me state and restate this : ODF will not embed fonts in the
1.2, 1.3, nor in the future, because the format is not meant to
focus on faithful layout rendering. Instead, PDF is meant that. ODF
focuses on office document exchanges.


If that is the OASIS opinion then TDF should bail out from the ODF
file format ASAP.

That decision makes ODF useless for presentation files created in
Impress and for vectorial art created in Draw. 

Even some text documents and spreadsheets rely on the fonts used...

PDF is a non-editable format. There is no similarity in function with
ODF.

We're not talking about the same use cases. Embedding fonts create a
whole lot of different problems in terms of interoperability.

But you're welcome to join the ODF TC, even as an individual.
