That would indeed be good.

If you want to make sure that the fonts (metrics and pfb files) needed
by PSNFSS are installed, then it is not enough to only install the LW35
fonts. In addition, one would need charter, pazo (currently in
tl-latex-recommended, where it does not belong), fpl, and rsfs. Probably
also uotpia, since it is now free. That is already a significant portion
of tl-fonts-recommended.
