I think the right question here is not why URW Garamond is not included in TL09:
it wasn't included in the previous releases, nothing has changed in its licence
since last release, it is still not included in the upcoming release: this is
quite understable.

A better question may be: would it be possible that a newer installation of TL
automagically recognizes the fonts already installed in texmf-local from a
previous version? I think the question has been raised, and the answer is that
it would be possible in theory, but is not yet automatically done by
getnonfreefonts-sys for some reason.

Reinhard, any comments on this point?
