Always embedding provides a huge simplification:

 - We don't need to worry about what fonts are on the

 - We don't need to worry if the fonts on the printer
   match the fonts on the screen.

 - We don't need to worry about level 3 / gs-cjk, etc.

If we subset, the size increase isn't that bad. Windows,
as I understands, always embeds.

Ghostscript should be considered just like an external
printer with unknown fonts, since, at this point,
it looks unlikely that it will be "playing nice" and
using the system font database.
