Yes, I did exactly this. This saved 25 MB from the ISO size. But this 
also made the non-XFT font setup very crippled (read: unusable). From 
now on, applications that need fonts like 
-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--18-120-100-100-c-90-iso8859-1 will fail to 
find such fonts. Such applications are usually broken WRT i18n anyway, 
and shouldn't be present on the LiveCD.

This removal has absolutely no effect on applications that use Xft, e.g. 
on all gtk2 apps.
