Can you give some examples? The antiqua font you mentioned in your
first posting is part of texlive:

As Norbert already mentioned the main reason to keep fonts out are
the license. E.g. garamondx is missing as it has a "Do Not Sell
Except by Arrangement" license (http://www.ctan.org/pkg/garamondx). 

I wonder why you are asking on the texlive list that they provide
scripts to install fonts which have a license which doesn't allow to
include them im texlive.
