i wish it were!  the number of times we
receive something incomplete from an
author is appalling.  usually it's styles,
not fonts, but there have been occasions
on which we couldn't legally or morally
produce what the author asked for without
getting a (commercial -- expensive!)
license for a font.  (in such a case,
we substitute, or request the author to
create the final pdf.)

and some fonts have licences that restrict
the use to what amounts to print, i.e., a
pdf containing even a subset of such a font
cannot be legally posted in electronic form.
how would you handle that then, as a publisher?
