You probably also want $HOME/Library/Fonts// there.
I am not enthused about embedding system directories in our texmf.cnf,
which will inevitably change without warning with os releases, cause
weird problems/slowdowns for some users because their setups aren't the
same as yours, etc.
OSFONTDIR is there because Hans wanted it, that's the only reason. I
guess some part of context setup/invocation sets it. I think any
determination of the value should be done by some os-specific tool (that
TL does not maintain), not just a random hardwired list.
Maybe whatever context does can be extracted into a more general tool.
I dunno. All I know is, I don't want to go there for the generic TL
