I posit that it is mostly an inconvenience. I understand that most fonts 
used nowadays
are encoded correctly, anyway. But there are exceptions and where they 
are unavoidable
for chart production, getting a chart to display correctly trumps 

Also, the situation is never static, each version uses a different set 
of fonts.

In either case, it's not the same issue as creating (and exchanging) 
running text.
