Default MS Word's embedding restrictions

It is well know that MS Word can embed TrueType fonts, but not Type 1 fonts. The ostensible reason for that is that T1 fonts lack the information about possible embedding restrictions. But now T1-flavoured OT fonts have that information, but still Word won't embed them.

In the assumption that Word doesn't even try to embed fonts with the OTF extension, I converted several OTFs to TTFs, and tried embedding. It didn't seem to work. So my question is, have anyone the same experience? And, for OT-savvy types, is the embedding information not included in any OT table, but additional to the OT tables?
