--- Comment #9 from V Stuart Foote <vstuart.foote at utsa.edu> ---
Those are not workarounds, and this is not a bug as the feature functions as
designed, and tools are provided to handle incompatible systems.

But, it is not an unreasonable request for enhancement. Technically feasible,
but could have annoying UX impact. Folks would complain equally loud, or
louder, if the default behavior were to become an unsolicited change from
expected fonts--corruption!

We will need to flesh out which font families as candidates for substitution.
And decide on rules for when multiple fonts are missing.  Some, MS Symbols,
Wingdings would with OpenSymbol are pretty obvious. What others?

Setting as enhancement, and over to ux-advise.
