Of course it does.  Maybe you don't use it or don't know how to do it. But
don't say it doesn't.

But I think we're also missing the point if -let's say
we were to design a brand new office file format that embeds or does

that's not the dominant format is already a reasoned choice, oftentimes
an act of departure from the dominant player, and sometimes a political
act. 

I think you are missing the point: it's not simply a matter of the embedded
fonts. If the brand new file format that you are creating wants to attract
users it can never have less features than the one it wants to replace. Or
at least it can not miss critical features.

Even if people want to switch for "political" reasons, I'm sure they don't
want their work crippled...
