as Martin says ... maybe consider a different printing house ... at 
least ask them why they want an fully embedded font and if they can 
define what fully means in these open type days ... what is the use of 
alternate shapes (or when alternates are used, what is the use of 
regular shapes) and what will they do with them given that all 
information about using them is not embedded anyway ...

In a similar fashion you can expect a printing house to have a full 
acrobat (> version 6) so that they can convert to different pdf 
standards if needed, remap color spaces, etc.
