I just copied the code from a MkII-XeTeX doc, hoping it will
work...should've tested before sending...could've just worked.

I had no idea what the 'Xserif' option does, and now one more riddle -
'specserif'. But even with this change, MkIV doesn't print anything:

!define font    : font with name cmuserif-normal-normal is not found
!define font    : unknown font cmuserif-normal-normal, loading aborted
!define font    : unable to define cmuserif-normal-normal as \*cyr12ptrmtf*
