IMHO this isn't a good thing. Lots of people expect that LibreOffice
would just use the font that is installed. So, for those users using
LibreOffice in Windows or in OSX who have access to the MSO fonts, would
definitely expect that opening a document that someone else sends your
way open with the correct fonts applied.
We already have enough issues with interoperability with MS Office -
going out of our way to add yet another (a replacement font even if you
have the correct font installed presumably legally) seems like asking
Maybe I'm misunderstanding the replacement table but if it's "replace,
even if font is installed" - I'm no fan.
