    ghostscript is going to be used as a post-processor, such a feature
    could be really beneficial.

FWIW, here is a post describing how to unembed fonts (I haven't tried
it myself):

So perhaps you could let (x)dvipdfmx do its thing, then unembed and do
whatever you want after that.

    BTW, who is responsible 

Primarily Shunsaku :). Also Akira.

    for xdvipdfmx coding today, 

FYI, xdvipdfmx and dvipdfmx have been the same program for some years
now, thanks primarily to Khaled. There is only one source directory.

    and where should I discuss related issues?

There is no mailing list specifically for dvipdfmx (or most other
drivers). Maybe we can use tex-k. --happy fonthacking, karl.
