No, if I move the font to ~/Library/Fonts, then I can use it freely in 
Textedit, including printing to pdf. Acrobat then tells me the 
resulkting pdf has an embedded subset of the font. Acrobat will also 
happily print the document.

So, assuming your assertion is true, it looks like Apple isn't 
respecting such flags. :-)
