Whilst the fix looks reasonable and important for on-screen, I am surprised it was an issue when printing.
At *printer resolution* it is really surprising that there are any bitmaps for the glyphs.
We should be talking about a 300 dpi printer minimum these days and so we should be requesting at least 50 pixel
high text for even 12pt nomimal size. Fonts usually don't have bitmaps at that size because they are large  and less important.
So I am not sure under what circumstances you saw it.

Secondly, I think that unless we were going down the raster path (which I think you said we were) that we normally explicitly used filled shapes for CJK.
