according to the docs, it seems that setting CMap resource is not
needed if the embedded fonts use AGL-compliant glyph names (including

this means that if the Type 1 fonts used in the document are correct
WRT glyph naming, nothing needs to be done.

the AdobeStandard encoding(s) mentioned above is (are) not the only
encoding(s) which does not need to be supplied with the ToUnicode CMap:
characters from the full Unicode range do not need a ToUnicode CMap
provided that the Type 1 fonts use correct glyph names.

is this true?
