Indeed, but you can't have it both ways. Another alternative would be 
using some kind of delimiter to mark the end of the family name. 
You'd have names such as "foo", "foo-x", and "foo-j" then. This would 
allow "foo" as the most basic name, but you'd have to modifiy the 
names of the other families.

That's what I'm doing as well. In most cases, using a more advanced 
model is not really worth the trouble. Apart from satisfying font 
naming requirements there's no additional benefit.
