True, but the point is that they can. Xtreme for Windows would 
substitute the same default font for a lot of missing fonts (e.g., if 
there is no Panose information for the font in the file) without any 
user control. With LX, if a user does not like how a particular font 
is mapped it is easy to set up a mapping to override it - and it works 
for other applications as well.
