One of the key goals for Open Source was that people would be able to
use it - just use it - without having to consult a lawyer. Unfortunately
it's really hard to use a font in a document without distributing it.
And in this case we have one way of distributing the font that's OK -
embedded in the document, and one that's not OK - aside the document.
And we are expecting the user - rather than a Linux distribution company
- to get those right.
Are you sure that doesn't sound impractical?
