Yes, this would be possible. You could create a font setup that knows what
fonts you have by default, restrict other fonts, not embed fonts etc. you
may still need the font metrics info though.

FOP can get info about embedding fonts from a config file. This is done
from a conversion of font files (look at the website).
In the case of PDFGraphics2D (as I said, not implemented) it would need to
setup the embedded fonts the same sort of way.
