Ken, yes, I understood that I can tell GS my TrueType equivalence for the CID
font SimplifiedArabic-Bold. But that means that I will need to redo it for
every CID font in my pdf file. In fact, several CID fonts were declared in the
attached file, but none were included.

And I will need to repeat the action for the next pdf with CID fonts? And how
do I communicate my equivalents to other people ?

I do not see why you cannot add a "font correctness" parameter to GS, that
could have (for example) 3 settings:
1. Severe : all fonts required to be present,
2. Medium : CID fonts required to be present,
3. Lenient : allow replacement of CID fonts by non-CID of same or similar name.

In the Lenient setting, GS will make every effort to display the pdf and use
any font with same or similar name. If the user just wants to see what is in
the pdf, why reject him out-of-hand?
