[Fontinst] determining the font shape in mtx

I'd like to know, if it is possible to write mtx
glyph definitions, depending from the font shape and/or
series. Suppose e. g. that some glyphs can be faked by 
a specific way in Italic fonts, but only if they are
really Italic, not just oblique or slanted, so that
my glyph definitions can't depend, say, from the italic
slant value.

So, is there a standard way to determine that the font
shape is really "it"?
