Hm, that is right.

This, however, I doubt.  Running pdffonts on the file says that all
fonts are embedded.  Running pdffonts with poppler-data removed (with
--force-depends, of course, since pdffonts' package does depend on it)
gives the error message:

Error: Missing language pack for 'Adobe-Japan1' mapping

many times.  Adobe reader is able to display the file without problems,
even without poppler-data installed.

Therefore it seems to me that rather the viewers need a dependency on
poppler-data, as xpdf itself already has.
