Now, as for humility, claiming in an assured and definitive way that ODF
will lose if it
does not embed fonts is not exactly humble either.

I didn't say that. I said that IF OASIS insists on refusing to embed fonts
in ODF (which is what you also peremptorily affirmed, even though Dennis
Hammilton in the ODF TC says it's not so) it is not the right file format
for LibreOffice.

ODF doesn't loose any value as an open universal file format if it decides
not to embed fonts. It just isn't right for an office suite.

In any case, it's my opinion. It doesn't lack humility.

If you wish to use .sla format instead of ODF, go ahead. Something tells
that fonts embedding won't matter as it would require recipients to have
Scribus, which, although a great piece of software is less used and known
than LibO or OOo.

Again, that is not what I said. I was suggesting that if LO or OASIS want to
consider embedding fonts there is an Open Source model you can use instead
of starting from zero.
