Setting j0 as default will cause licence violation if a document uses
a commercial font that does not allow full download and a user forgets
to set -j in the workflow. The EPS should contain the font. Remember
that EPS is indended to be usable everywhere and you can never
guarantee that the same fonts are available on all computers.
