In a rush: there’s a recent fontspec mechanism for this, and it’s in recent versions of the lucidaot package. (With the username and password you were sent when purchasing the fonts from TUG, you can re-download any newer package version — i.e. lucidaot.zip and lucidaot-tex.zip — at any time.)

That’s the *.fontspec files in tex/latex/lucidaot. In short, just write


and this will cause lucidabrightot.fontspec to be read and definitions equivalent to


to be loaded. Same for lucidasansot.fontspec and lucidasanstypewriterot.fontspec.

Not sure that answers your question, but hopefully that’s a step towards it.

This mechanism is not advertised in lucidaot.pdf intentionally, as it requires a recent fontspec and the instructions in the doc are meant to be as backward-compatible as possible.
