Since you already found out what to do you could write a script and
make it available to others.  Then your last point wouldn't be
relevant anymore.

And if other people find your script useful they will help you to make
it more portable.  Concerning the getnonfreefonts script I'm grateful
for the invaluable feedback, especially from *BSD users.

Another advantage of such a script is that poeple can see what
*exactly* you are doing and you don't have to explain it again and
again with your own words.

IMO your approach is quite interesting.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
