Why not? (Do you really want to make things more difficult than they
can be on purpose? Who is going to install polish fonts then ... ?)

That's not even entirely true. Fonts in minimals DO change, without
running a special installer. Most of time it is also true that ConTeXt
version probably changes inbetween as well anyway, so font cache will
be rebuilt, but you should not rely on that.

Or start expanding fontinst to handle OpenType fonts? Anyone?
