Adobe has been (relatively) easy-going on this, based on anecdotal 
evidence, and has allowed one to back-rev from an OpenType font to the 
normal version upon request.

pdfTeX does support OpenType fonts (those which use TrueType outlines), so 
this really should be a thing which can be extended fairly easily. Bakoma 
TeX purports to support OpenType as well.

For my part, I've suggested in the past that a Mac OS X-specific pdfTeX 
extension should be done to support ATSUI fonts, and suspect that if such 
were done it'd be easy to adapt that to OpenType.
