Default MS Avalon: No Type 1 support?

The online type world is muttering that Microsoft Vista will have two rendering engines: Avalon and GDI, and that only GDI will be able to work with Type 1 fonts.

If this is true, what does it mean? How will it affect type-using apps in Windows?

And what is the rationale for having two (competing?) rendering systems?
