Seems that what you really want to know, is whether the defect PDF 
becomes good by merging with the good one. In the good file, the font is 
an embedded subset, which is a font by itself. In the bad file, the font 
is not embedded at all.

In your example, the codes for the envelope symbol are not the same in 
both files, so it would be tricky, i.e. we can't just modify the reference.
