in section 3.4.4 System font configuration for XeTEX and LuaTEX of
the The TEX Live Guide—2016.
I wonder about the validity of that assertion about Mac OS X. Does
MacTeX do anything special which is new ? because in recent years
I don't think that was the case. Indeed, the common advice on the
Mac OS X mailing list is to *copy* manually all fonts one wishes
to use from the TeXLive tree to the user $HOME/Library/Fonts
repertory for XeTeX visibility.
Else one must use filenames, or fontspec with ExternalLocation
