We did some testing with dfonts when the loader was adapted to changes
in the dfont specification. To be honest, I'd stay away from it. There
are dfonts out there that are only to be used by the operating system
and are not feature complete for instance.

I see that you use the name: prefix, how about using file: and then the
filename? The name: prefix depends on a name database and afaik context
and latex use a different approach for that (database code is plugged in
so to say).

The only help I can think of is sending taco and me the font off-list so
that we can see if it loads on our (non osx) machines.
