It seems the problem in XeTeX/LuaTex, we cannot identify whether it is
OpenType font or not with just its extensions. As I said, OpenType spec
allows us to use .ttf extensions for OpenType font.
Anyway, I want to deal with this (yes, sure). But add some tricks to detect
OpenType (I don't know how to do ;) to those TeX implementations is better way
to solve this. How about this?
