Is the imported PostScript file editable in Illustrator? It may be that
Illustrator can not import PostScript files with subsetted fonts as it does not
 have the complete font.

This may be a a use case for providing the option to embed the complete font in
PS/PDF files.

However I would be interested in seeing a PostScript file with the same font
that Illustrator can import so that I can see what type of font embedding can
be imported.

The PostScript file is platform independent.
