I don't consider cross-distro compatibility is that important.
Generally it is hard to realize that all PCs have the same
image of a ps file generated under a certain PC using various
fonts available for the PC. 

BTW, we Japanese have defact standard PostScript font names
for Japanese characters: Ryumin-Light and GothicBBB-Medium.
If there're ones for Chinese/Korean characters and people
use only the defact fonts, cross-distro compatibility may be
