Indeed. :)

I'd expect it to be looking at the fsType field in the OS/2 table:


However, that should allow it to be embeddable. Maybe it's getting 
confused because Nikosh has the (relatively rare, I think) "No 
subsetting" flag set there? (Just a guess.)

Sounds like it'd be worth filing a bug report on this, as it certainly 
looks like incorrect behavior. Perhaps Jiang or Khaled would have time 
to track down exactly what's happening here.
