Why do you think that TTFs are easier to handle than the OTFs we
already have?  Both flavours use the SFNT wrapper format; the
differences are one level below.  It should be straightforward to put
the OTFs into a PDF document.  The very problem is subsetting of the
fonts to get smaller documents, something which is beyond lilypond

I discourage that.  You loose flexibility.  OTFs are much more
