If it can be abstracted inside fontspec, I think this is a good solution.
Let's implement it and try it out.

The following defaults will happen, I think:

\fontspec{Latin Modern Roman} % <- name
\fontspec{ec-lmr10}           % <- name
\fontspec{ec-lmr10.otf}       % <- file (from the extension)
\fontspec[Path]{ec-lmr10}     % <- file

([Path] is the same as [ExternalLocation].)

This is the same as currently happens, so I can't see any problems.
