I'd call your st1 an EC variant, st2 an XL2 variant, and st3 some sort of custom expert encoding. Ultimately names aren't *that* important, but they can help a lot when others try to pick up and understand your work.
Thank you Adam for your suggestion. Your naming convention has a logic. The reason why I do not use it is that I utilized work of Petr Olsak. I am using all *.tfm, *.map and *.enc files. I believe it is not a drawback for ConTeXt but it is advantage for me: do not prepare hundreds of metric files.
I actually had gone back and re-thought that suggestion (especially after examining Olsak's OFS in further detail). As the st1 does have *character* (and not just *glyph*) differences from EC, it really is a different encoding.
Again, great stuff. Thanks!
