Is it a licensing issue?
No, the Minion OTF fonts are all licensed for viewing, printing, and editing; the Minion TTF fonts are marked as 'viewing and printing' only, as they have been converted by TypeTool 2 (it automatically raises the bar). The Word file opens (correctly) 'read only', as it contains the embedded fonts.

Minion Pro (regular) and Minion Pro Italic are embedded, but Minion Pro Medium Subheading, which I have used for the principal subheadings, is simply replaced by Times New Roman Bold. That wouldn't matter very much, as Times and Minion are rather similar, if the subheadings in question contained certain characters that are in the Minion Pro Medium Subhead but not in Times New Roman.

The Minion Pro family has 32 members without the condensed versions, and Word clearly has something against some of them; but I don't know which. Word doesn't seem to object to embedding more than four families members of a family, for it embeds both Myriad Bold and Myriad Black.
