AFAIK, the current development version of dvipdfmx if *far* superior
to pdfTeX w.r.t. font embedding.  It can handle subsetting of both
Type 1, CFF, and CID-keyed fonts; everything is converted to CFF.  For
documents with CJK fonts, dvipdfmx usually creates files which are up
to *ten* times smaller compared to pdfTeX!  It also has automatic
ToUnicode support (not fully working yet), something which is not
easily achieved currently with pdfTeX.
