Turning off font embedding

Is it still possible to generate a .ps or .pdf file referencing ONLY 
fonts from the Adobe "35" with font embedding turned off? So that it 
will only be printable on a printer with a suitable Postscript 
interpreter (or via Ghostscript) as it used to be in the Bad Old Days™. 
I can't find any -noembed option, and the -M or -M0 of dvips doesn't 
seem to have any effect.

Interestingly, due to the progressive enshittification of the search 
engines, it is no longer possible to search meaningfully for the above, 
as all you get are pages telling you how to enforce embedding :-)
