1. An author can never be sure that another user has exactly the same
system fonts installed, thus even the source file may be nonportable

2. If an xdv file is used for debugging, it is necessary to see the
contents in hexadecimal, it usually need not be rendered.

Thus it will hardly be useful to send an xdv file to someone else.
IMHO nonportability will not be a problem.
