It's awesome.

Encoding vector is always embedded in Type1 font. If encoding vector is
not specified in map file, you can get it from pfb/pfa file.

I'm not sure about this. Probably it is the way to go (if it makes maintenance easier).
We are talking here about hundreds of smaller literate sources and thousands of htf files, right?
IMHO literate sources are good for manual editing and documentation.
Auto-generated literate sources would not be meant for manual editing, would it be?

Did you consider generating htf files directly?
How do you test these htf fonts?

I'm sorry, I have too many lame questions...

Best regards,
