Yes: it accepts both "name:Lucida Sans" and "name:lucidasans"
as user input (as well as a file: equivalent)

It succeeds, because internally context uses the 'file:' approach
in all cases. Since file: is the default, it is not even reported by
\fontname, which would be 'lbr' in this case (assuming Y&Y/TUG names).

I assume context would fail on filenames with spaces in them, but
otoh Hans probably disallows those right from the start.
