Even that can be easily fixed with a patch like this (only quickly
tested, and against Slinks type1inst-0.6):

Not sure about the names for the cm*.pfb's: usually, they are said
to be from a collaboration of the AMS, Y&Y and Blue Sky Research, so
I chose that name. There doesn't seem to be a real agreement about
who gets the credit in the /Notice field, because the xy-fonts also
  %Original Metafont design  Copyright (C) 1991-1997 Kristoffer H. Rose.

but also

  /Notice (Copyright (C) 1996, 1997 Ross Moore and Y&Y, Inc.)

So, the AMS has the copyright on the CM design (IIRC), but they
didn't do the PFB encoding alone, thus the `ams+y&y+bsr' name...
