There is a very simple workaround for the problem of DELETING
text in font that doesn't allow editing privileges.

It turns out that there is ONE operation that IS allowed for
such text. You are still allowed to change the font to any
font that you have installed on your system that does allow
editable embedding. Change the font from, let's say "Glurbish
Modern" (a font that obviously doesn't allow editing) to 
let's say "Inebriated Oblique" (a font that probably doesn't
care if it is embedded or whatever). Once the font change is
made from Glurbish Modern to Inebriated Oblique, you can delete
the characters that are now in Inebriated Oblique without any
problem.
