I thought the question was whether we could always use TrueType fonts and 
bundle a TrueType rasterizer written in PS.  Sending native Type42 fonts 
is always better if the interpreter can handle them.

I'm not sure this is reasonable though; any Type42 interpreter written in 
postscript would be pretty slow.
