 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?
