But that is not what the previous discussions suggest, nor the current
practice; almost all font names are unique, yet many packages includes a
foundry name or even invent one if it does not exist e.g.
fonts-hosny-amiri and fonts-hosny-thabit; there is no other fonts with
the names Amiri or Thabit nor there is a foundry named Hosny.
