I've uploaded a new context beta that now looks at the postscriptname
(but with some extra checking and in the same spot where fontname and
fullname are checked).

The ps names are normally used in the backend for unique font
identifiers btu are also used by the backend for ttc lookups. So, if
different fonts have the same ps fontnames the result might be
unexpected. Also, in an upcoming luatex patch we will fallback on index
0 + warning which is in most cases quite ok (at least some output).

Wolfgang: the new context font code already had that ps name resolving
so now both methods are more or less similar in that respect, although
we can have subtle differences in font/fullnames.
