Yes, it seems that upstream has adopted that convention, it seems.

The easy way to go is to just create two packages. Another way might be
to generate only the OpenType fonts and create an alias for the fonts.

Of course, this second solution may present problems to applications
that don't use a modern font manipulation system like fontconfig or an
otf-aware X/font server.
