v0.5 preview

I have been able to create a KF8 mobi with an embedded font (attached). It renders correctly on my Kindle:

But when attempting to embed the same font in my dictionary I have the following warning
Code:

Apparently, when Kindlegen detects indexing --the essence of dictionaries-- it downgrades to KF7 file format. I have seen similar reports in the Mobi/Prc Books forum.

Is there a way to bypass this problem? My future v0.5 dictionary needs this font to properly render Klingon translations!

BTW When opening the KF7 document with the (unreliable) Kindle Previewer, characters are correctly rendered using the embedded font:

But the Kindle physical device refuses to use the font because the book's file format is not KF8.
