Because Acrobat is a more contained / controlled environment, along the
order of a PostScript interpreter / environment.

By contrast, Illustrator is a more interactive / application and hence
more open / egalitarian and making more use of local resources (hence
fonts), and so is less able to do / handle things like re-encode a
typeface on the fly.

There's a movement on to work with Adobe to resolve this sort of
incompatibility (which Ross is involved in)---I believe there'll be an
announcement presently for a bug-tracking site / app, so save that
source code / problem description for that.
