I just want to have \ten* definitions so macros \rm \it \tt ... works
automatically without need to re-define them in every one document.

I do not like idea to define all those macros everytime in everyone
document... As I think that for these situation can be TeX format used.

Anyway, it is limitation of fontloader or bug?
