Thanks, I've done this (Khaled of course already knows about the 
problem), including a test file, and mentioning your suggestion:

BTW, this issue happens when an explicit xdvipdfmx command is 
used--either on the command line (after xelatex was run with the -no-pdf 
parameter), or as an -output-driver option on xelatex.  For some reason, 
the issue does not happen when xelatex is called on the input file and 
produces an output PDF--the font is embedded.  Does that mean that 
xelatex by default ignores font licensing restrictions? (The resulting 
PDF does subset the font, which is probably not the correct result if 
the "no subsetting" restriction in the font is taken at face value.)
