Let me quote, since you obviously missed this part "Until and unless the
deficiencies are fixed, ODF is not suitable as the native format for
Gnumeric or any other spreadsheet."

IMO without font embedding the same applies to files whose contents rely on
the fonts (namely presentations and vector graphics).

I'm not really concerned about vector graphics because I doubt Draw has any
significant user base (there are several dedicated open source vector
graphic programs) but Impress is the only Open Source alternative to
PowerPoint under Windows. It would be a shame if it is limited by the file

I can understand the limitations of cross-platform font support but removing
it altogether means that even people using the same OS will not be able to
use font embedding.
