Ah yes, here it is: "\font\Doulos=”Doulos SIL/AAT” at 10pt"
I might recommend you add this into the AAT-info.tex file:
    \font\testfont="\myfontname/AAT" at 10pt

But then, it may confuse people if they don't realise the /AAT needs to 
be applied manually.

Anyway, another option to add to fontspec, I suppose :)

You've been mentioning "other platforms" increasingly more often 
recently. Is there something that you're not telling us? :)
