But we cannot have font-anarchy: If Scribus has accepted a font
previously (like DejaVu) and the font is not changed in a fundamental
way; then Scribus must not unilaterally refuse that font (at least not
for existing documents) later.

The issue is that if you create a document in an environment where a given font is available and then try to open the document in an environment where the font is not available, Scribus has no other option than to substitute the font.
It is similar to creating a document that refers to an external image and then trying to view the document on a system without the image.
Would it be possible to include fonts in File -> Collect for Output or are their copyright issues that prevent it?
Regards, William
