Yes, makes perfect sense to me. If the font is used in the design, 
then there is much less to be gained from changing the current font 
anyway. For a start, in that case, the user is not likely to be 
surprised by seeing "XXX (missing)" in the text tool anyway because 
just a moment before that, he has seen a message "This document uses 
font XXX, which is currently not installed.".

Yes, fine.
