That is another solution, but not necessarily a better solution. I think a
better solution is to ship the TTF once rather than embedding it into every
file. PDFs only include the characters that are in use, where the ODF would
need to include the whole thing. You also can have problems with versioning
(what if the version on the computer is newer than the one in the ODT?) I
recommend people ship fonts out of band like are done with hyphenation
tables.
