By following this conservative line of thought, we should
not use OpenType fonts and stick to plain old but good Type 1
fonts! In fact, I would recommend dropping support for Type 1
fonts from XeTeX. If you want Type 1 fonts, use the ancient
engines. Also, each TeX destribution comes with all these
TeX-based engines. So these people can always use their
ancient files with no problem!
