Their main purpose was to be metrically compatible with fonts that are 
very often used in document exchange. If there were no compatible fonts 
available on the system this usually results in text reflowing and this 
means unnecessary trouble. If the system always has the required fonts 
there is no need to install metrically compatible equivalents, which 
happens to be the case on Windows.

Hope that helps.
