Back in July, I took a look [1] and it appeared that Charts used a
TextField instead of a Spark Label to measure how much room there was for
axis labels.  If you don't embed fonts, I think things work better because
the TextField's measurements will be pretty close to the Spark Label's
measurements.   In the test case, no labels would be shown because without
both a CFF and non-CFF font in the app, the TextField will compute bad
measurements.   I don't know if there are cases where it somehow did work.

This change makes the default behavior more desirable when fonts are
embedded, but still doesn't let you use Spark Label on the Chart axis.  I
could be wrong but I think that if you didn't embed fonts, you might see
subtle differences in your axis labels since TextField and TextLine don't
choose the same pixels, but maybe nobody cares.

I'm not going to oppose this change if the rest of the community is ok
with it, I just want us to know up front what kinds of issues it might
