I didn't want to suggest moving LM to collection-basic, in particular
because the package is relatively big.

But it would still be handy to have it in MacTeX.


PS: <sarcasm on>On the other hand, if you ask me, why should TL ship
cm in collection-basic? One can use any other font, in particular in
new engines ...</sarcasm off> In fact we don't have CM in ConTeXt
distribution and I still think that plain XeTeX should load lmr
instead of cmr, but that's completely off-topic here.
