eg: you setup the Text Body paragraph style to use Liberation Sans font
fo your document. If you pass it over to me, where I have the same style
with the Liberation Serif font setup, I can read *your* document with
*my* settings.

Are you sure about it? I would consider it rather bug than a feature.

If I set my document to use 8pt MS Comic Sans as a default text body font, 
then I want my document to be mostly 8pt MS Comic Sans. If I send this 
document to my friend, I want him to see that absurd font setting (if only he 
has MS Comic Sans installed). In electronic documents (as ODT) this is very 
important to preserve any formatting applied by author.

Or maybe your comment applies only to documents created on base of default 
Writer template? I have switched to my own default template years ago.

And yes, I know that if anyone wants to preserve formatting, then PDF is the 
best choice. But sometimes you want to send editable document (Hybrid PDF does 
not change anything, since it basically is ODT embedded into PDF, so any 
remarks applied to ODT applies to Hybrid PDF as well).
