It's only going to be a problem if they have an older RIP which isn't  
able to handle it, which depends on when they last did an upgrade. If  
it is a problem, it'll be one up-front since they won't even be able  
to generate a proof (if they're doing this properly --- never trust a  
printer who uses a different workflow for generating proofs then for  
making plates).

You may be able to work around this by dumping to PostScript and re- 
distilling w/ the correct settings, or you can run the file through  
GhostScript and convert all type to paths (which will blow up file- 
size / complexity).
