Because xdvipdfmx is not strictly obeying the law. XeTeX does not care which flags are set in the font, it just creates an XDV file with references to the fonts used. The output drivers which produce the PDF file should care.

When a font exists on some system and its embedding is neither allowed for print nor for preview use, then it's kind of a system font, restricted to be used on the screen to just display information, including in an internet browser. With preview loading into a font editor is meant.

It's questionable whether all these restrictions are legal.



If you don't find it in the index, look very carefully through the entire catalogue.
