FYI t1disasm on one of Bitstream Charter font files gives:

   userdict /RD {string currentfile exch readstring pop} executeonly put
   userdict /ND {noaccess def} executeonly put

This is perfectly acceptable: the use of userdict for this purpose
is even documented as an option in the Type1 Specification.
