Sure it would be nasty. But again: nothing of this has to do with
the fonts of the pdf. So why do think that Acrobat would suddenly
refuse to add an annotation to the pdf if it contains a type1 font?

If you really think that this will no longer work in january, then
your only option is to switch to lualatex + unicode-math now. There
is no chance that pdftex will be able to handle open type fonts in
the near future.
