IRIE Shinsuke is not saying that we are not allowed to use, embed, or
rename fonts, assuming they have a suitable license.

What is being stated is that this *particular* font includes restrictions
in its license that make it incompatible with the GPL so it shouldn't
be embedded inside a GPL program. But as you state, we should
still be able to use it if we just use it as a separate file instead.
