If you want such a feature become true, create a team working on this 
topic, solve the restrictions pointed to by different people and find / 
convince / pay one or more developer to work on such an implementation.

I could imagine an extension linking shipped fonts to the product to use 
them in addition to the fonts already present on the OS and adding the 
fonts used in a document to the document's structure.

But I'm not a developer and I didn't see any developer raising his hand 
here in this thread.

If this topic is the most important to you, you will find people to join 
you in maintaining the work.

But you really need to start working - repeated discussions will not 
lead anywhere but to frustration on all sides...

[A]s LibreOffice is a meritocracy it's easy to raise awareness on your 
favorite issue: Just implement it (or have it implemented) in a way that 
doesn't break any other part of the program. If all the external 
criteria are met too, it is very likely that you will be applauded for 
your work!

Best regards
