Some time back we typeset a book that used Optima for the display math
and Palatino for the text and text-math.  This was not a case of "forcing"
a PostScript font because the book didn't use any PostScript fonts.  It
was the design asked for.  Having basal and math fonts in different faces
is common enough for use to enforce a "use \$ not \it" rule for all math
variables.
