Oh, it's the right place. :-)

There are no plans, currently.

Maybe there are some utilities that can translate your Type3 fonts to
TrueType or Type 1 to use them in FOP. The other possibility, if you
know Java, is to read the specs and add support for it yourself. We
would be happy to include code for this in FOP. Tore Engvig has once
started code for Type 3 but that's obviously not finished. Have a look
at org.apache.fop.pdf.PDFFontType3.java as a starting point.
