Because of the Adobe CMAP stuff, right? That stuff is only in non-free
because people are letting Adobe get away with it. They are almost
certianly not copyrightable *at all* - they're just character
translation maps. There is only one correct way to do them. Anybody
who cares about it should be able to get that stuff out of non-free
without too much trouble.

I find it significant that nobody has done so.
