Of course. But it is, if we neglect jbig2, the only embeddable one.

The file formats that can be embedded depend on the output driver, not on

generated PS with pdfTeX.

I don't see a problem here. Put them into a subdirectory and TeX, pdfTeX
or Ghostscript, if well configured, will find them easily.
