I think this has the potential for being very problematic, licensing wise. Fonts provided on Windows and macOS are not open source, an end user most certainly does not have the right to distribute them.
Adobe products like InDesign have the option to bundle fonts with a project, it's normal because this is for the publishing industry, it's a very small user base - and they pay for their fonts. Here we're talking about a wide variety of users who aren't aware of these licensing issues.
This definitely should not be enabled by default. And it would be preferable I think to offer font substitution, at least as a fallback.

Maybe a function to remap paths when fonts aren't found?
Do you mean to convert a ShapeString into a "dumb" set of curves, breaking the link to the font? Inkscape can do that. (On the other hand, this is already possible by using Draft Downgrade)
