Giving a try at OpenType-info.tex, after defining \fontname as cmr10  
(which I thought should have referred to  
cmr10.otf), I get:

This is XeTeXk, Version 3.14159-2.1-0.84 (Web2C 7.5.2)
  %&-line parsing enabled.
entering extended mode
! Font \testfont=cmr10 at 12.0pt not loadable: ATSUI font not found.
l.7 \font\testfont="\fontname" at 12pt

I guess this is perfectly normal, given the CM OTF fonts are not  
"standard" OS X OTF fonts, installed at the standard locations  
/Library/Fonts etc. Maybe a warning should be specified then, in  
OpenType-info.tex, telling which type of font files can be used.

I used cmr10.otf because I'm unsure which font files, if any, on my  
setup are OTF.
