Currently, hinting fallback is only implemented for TrueType fonts.  Both CFF-based and Type 1 fonts are missing this.

Interestingly, noone has ever complained.  Either there are much less unhinted fonts which use third-order Bézier curves, or such fonts aren't used as screen fonts where bad hinting is immediately visible.
