As long as ODF has this inherent limitation it WILL NEVER SUCCEED
as a universal document exchange format!!!

Different formats exists with different goals. But there is this great
thing called hybrid PDF document - it is a PDF with ODF embedded.

Interesting, didn't know about this! 

I was just going to propose something similiar: ODF documents with
embedded PDF files for read-only and exact output purposes.

You can view it in any PDF reader pixel-perfect, or open it as
editable to create new works.

So I do not need to have two versions of the document on my harddrive
(odt and pdf) any longer.
But I assume it is not possible to open that file with other ODF
compatible programs, or is it possible to extract the odf document

It is not just about fonts, you have page page size and margins, page
breaks, dynamic text, binary objects... 

But most of this should already be part of the ODF document?

If I am not mistaken, ODF does
not specify how the output should exactly "look", but more how it
should "feel". You can have a compliant ODF viewer targeting small
screens, just like with HTML.
