The point was that they support cff fonts, and the conversion from cff
otf to plain cff is easier than from glyf to t1 or cff or etc. (From
what I read, there are still a lot of RIPs in service that do not
support type42 -- or at least bureaus that had so many problems w/
glyf ttfs in the past that they are gunshy of them now....)
Those said, I could have been less ambiguous......
