PS: Since August 2008, when I became a member of the ODF TC, I don't recall any conclusion that font embedding is out of scope for the OpenDocument Format. I don't know what such an assertion might be based on. It is definitely the case that the ODF specification does not specify the rendering and presentation of documents. But that doesn't exclude font embedding. After all, there are already significant provisions for fonts in ODF, they just don't encompass embedding font files.

Thanks for the information. This all sounds promising to me. So essentially, what you are saying is if ... "hypothetically" ... a proposal were to be put forward for embedding fonts and a group such as LibreOffice showed a committed willingness to use this new option with ... let's say ... a LibreOffice Reader and if other groups were to support this new option, then it may pass?

Off hand, I would say that embedding a font is not just for readers to use. I would say that there must then be support for LO to fully use that in the editor for viewing, editing, printing, and generating other file formats that support it (such as PDF with embedded fonts).
