Is this really needed? The XPS Exporter has an image fallback that writes out an image for objects that the XPS Specs can't handle.

I don't think this is needed at all. PS fonts can be outlined and using image fallbacks for objects XPS can't handle is ok.

In the PDF export dialog a user can check which fonts can be embedded, and which will be outlined. Users can even change Scribus's behaviour for a particular font. Until we have a unified export dialog (as in CorelDraw), there should at least be a warning that a file is using PostScript fonts, which can't be embedded and will be converted to outlines. There may be other potential issues like PDF Form elements in a file, so an XPS profile makes as much sense as the PostScript profile, IMHO.

I agree, should be done.
