Labels: special font styles disappears after SVG export

I'm right now making a map which uses the font Univers which has a lot of styles outside the normal bold, italic etc. I'm using the style "47 Light Condensed Oblique" which looks great in QGIS but when I export the map without "draw text as outlines" ticked the font exports as "Univers LT Std" and with style italic.

<text fill="#000000" fill-opacity="1" stroke="none" xml:space="preserve" x="0" y="0" font-family="Univers LT Std" font-size="60" font-weight="400" font-style="italic">

I'm not sure if this is a limitation in the SVG format or if QGIS forgets this special style when exporting?

Also, I'm using QGIS on a Mac running Maverics.

That checkbox it active and it not possible to uncheck it on both Windows and Linux, qgis 2.4 and master. And since it is checked then the fonts are exported as expected.
