This could eventually destroy ODF as a viable world standard if at some
point some software company or organization comes up with a popular program
(example Microsoft) that embeds fonts so that anyone editing the document,
viewing it, or printing it uses the same font chosen by the original author.
No computer standard is likely to survive long term as long as adamant
decisions are (carved in stone) and not left to future users to contramand
if deemed expedient.
I think that is a bit harsh, don't you think?
FWIW, here is a description of how Microsoft Office supports embedding
of fonts in documents and the limitations to it. If you want to take a
look at how this is achieved in OOXML, take a look at OOXML section
17.8.1 Font Embedding.
