No, that's (obviously) not a good idea.

What would be nice, though, is that when I install a font package, those
fonts become available, under consistent names, to all the font-using
packages capable of using that format of font. One imagines a system
similar to the emacs add-on packages, with register hooks.

No, I have no idea if that is practical, or even possible. I'm just
saying what I would like.
