Although I also think that the current situation is unsatisfying, I want to
remind my fellow users of our issue description guidelines (just click above on
the links “issue type”, “priority”, and so on): this IS an issue of the type
“feature” and of the priority “3”.

And what makes things worse is not the fact that this issue is open for more
than 3 years now, but that 3 years ago Adobe announced to “phase out” PostScript
Type 1 fonts and to target only on OpenType fonts, and that hence OOo must
support OpenType fonts just as it supported (and sill supports) Type 1 fonts.

Thus I also feel that the target “later” does not reflect the community's wishes
and prioritizing for OpenType support appropriately.
