Ah, no what I was assuming was the font list would only show the missing
fonts from the current document.

If the list expanded for each new document loaded and showed missing
fonts from all loaded or opened documents, then that's not useful and
positively a bad thing.

It does this on Windows, and is a required feature. (Although you are
not technically typing into a writable filed, but just navigating the
menu by typing. Pressing Return selects the highlighted font.)
