Oops: missed your post-scriptum first!

XeTeX uses the system's fonts, both in TrueType or OpenType form.  
PostScript fonts are on-the-fly converted to OpenType and cached. So  
you would need to install Utopia/Fourier best as TrueType/OpenType.  
But – XeTeX still has some problems to use particular fonts in math  
mode. The reason is that the TeX math fonts are irregularly encoded,  
and XeTeX would need a mapping from Unicode slots (the characters you  
type in the source file) to TeX macro names and then a far more  
complicated mapping from a font's file name and a position inside  
that font (as recorded in XeTeX's XDV output file) to slots in an  
Unicode encoded font.

Could be at Christmas it'll work!
