The original motivation was that some cups customers complains of seeing
unsighty squares. (IMHO, despite it being the "correct" behavior according to
spec - it is just .notdef and .notdef could be anything the font vendor
decides). So the desired behavior - though considered off-spec - is to ignore
the presence of .notdef and uses "space" (if it is a text font). 

That's my understanding of the problem.
