For many years Type 1 fonts have been obsoleted:
http://blogs.adobe.com/typblography/2005/10/phasing_out_typ.html

Newer OSX releases have problems with Type 1 fonts, e.g.
http://www.expertreviews.co.uk/software/268417/snow-leopard-poses-serious-font-problems-for-quarkxpress
There are other known problems with them, e.g. bug 79187.

With free and great tools such as http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FontForge
converting them losslesslyy to the OpenType format, there is not much reason to
invest much energy to an orphaned file format.
